From January-August 2017, Mercy Corps, the International Rescue Committee (IRC), Oxfam, Action Against Hunger, Catholic Relief Services (CRS), and Cooperazione Internazionale undertook a livelihoods and market assessment in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe in Northeast Nigeria. The Livelihoods and Market Recovery Assessment (LMRA) for Northeast Nigeria was designed to gain a deeper understanding of post-insurgency livelihood and market recovery strategies and to identify opportunities for future market system programming in this conflict-affected area. This included: 1) identifying opportunities and constraints for agricultural-based activities for conflict-affected communities and; 2) understanding the cross-cutting market system dynamics across three conflict-afflicted states: Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe.
