The humanitarian crisis in north-east Nigeria remains severe due to ongoing conflict, continued internal displacement and the unpredictable return of refugees from neighbouring countries. New population movements continued to be recorded in November, with 1,862 new arrivals in Gwoza, followed by 729 in Askira/Uba, 428 in Mafa, 373 in Ngala and 358 in Madagali; Jere and Chibok recorded relatively high numbers of departures. Additionally, important and unexpected arrivals of population were recorded in Nganzai, Konduga and Magumeri where there is very limited partner presence due to insecurity. Humanitarian agencies mobilised to respond rapidly to the most pressing needs, in particular through the rapid response mechanism until sectors can plan and deliver a comprehensive response.
