During February 2019, the sector partners assisted more than 1.4 million individuals with food assistance (through in-kind distribution or cash transfers) in the three most affected north-east states of Nigeria. The largest gap identified remains in Adamawa State, followed by Yobe State and Borno State. Sustaining the provision of necessary emergency food assistance through the most appropriate modalities and harmonized targeting is critical to ensure availability of nutritious foods for the most vulnerable populations, especially as we draw towards the lean season. Following the sudden return of displaced populations back to Rann from Cameroon, joint advocacy efforts continue to call for the Government to ensure people who return are provided with satisfactory conditions of safety, dignity and security, as outlined in the endorsed Borno Returns Strategy (2018) and international law.
