During March 2019, the sector partners assisted more than 1.4 million individuals with food assistance (through in-kind distribution or cash/vouchers) 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. Regarding food assistance in Rann, partners are looking into in-kind modality to conduct distributions in May before roads close due to the rainy season. Intensive planning exercise and logistics arrangements are ongoing. 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.
