As of October 2018, the sector partners have assisted almost 1.8 million individuals out of 2.9 million targeted (62%) with agriculture and livelihood interventions in the three most affected north-east states of Nigeria since the beginning of 2018. No significant increase of people reached compared to the previous month. The largest gap identified is in Yobe State, followed by Adamawa State, and Borno State. To be able to maintain the current positive food security and nutrition trend, there is a need to sustain the ongoing food and livelihoods assistance, including the synchronized provision of agricultural inputs and food assistance. The federal and local government need to expand safe and secure access to land and productive assets throughout the year in order to harness sustainable recovery and resilience.
