The continuation of conflict in Northeast Nigeria has created a complex humanitarian crisis, rendering sections of Borno state as hard to reach. To address information gaps facing the humanitarian response in Northeast Nigeria and inform humanitarian actors on the demographics of households in hard-to-reach areas of Northeast Nigeria, as well as to identify their needs, access to services and movement intentions, REACH has been conducting a monthly assessments of hard-to-reach areas in Northeast Nigeria since November 2018.
Using its Area of Knowledge (AoK) methodology, REACH remotely monitors the situation in hard-toreach areas through monthly multi-sector interviews in accessible Local Government Area (LGA) capitals with the following typology of Key Informants (KIs): KIs who are newly arrived internally displaced persons (IDPs) who have left a hard-to-reach settlement in the last 3 months; KIs who have had contact with someone living or having been in a hard-to-reach settlement in the last month (traders, migrants, family members, etc.). All percentages presented in this factsheet, unless otherwise specified, represent the proportion of settlements assessed within a LGA reporting this specific response. Findings are only reported on LGAs where at least 5% of all settlements in the respective LGA have been assessed. The findings presented are indicative of broader trends in assessed settlements in September 2019, and are not statistically generalisable.
