As of November 2018, the sector partners have assisted almost 1.9 million individuals with agriculture and livelihood interventions in the three most affected north-east states of Nigeria since the beginning of 2018. No slight increase of people reached compared to the previous month (1.8 million). The largest gap identified is in Yobe State, followed by Adamawa State, and Borno State. The dry season agriculture campaign is ongoing, targeting more than 80,000 households. Partners have scaled up micro-gardening activities in Borno State to support households in growing nutritious vegetables to supplement food intake and nutrition. Access and security challenges remain a significant constraint to providing life-saving assistance and agricultural livelihood outreach activities, which includes the distribution of fertilizer, particularly in Borno State. Advocacy efforts are ongoing to engage the Government in facilitating the security clearance process for fertilizer movement during the dry season agriculture production.
