The Cadre Harmonize (CH) is the framework for the consensual analysis of acute food and nutrition insecurity in the Sahel and West Africa region. The CH process is coordinated by CILSS and jointly managed by ECOWAS and UEMOA within the Sahel and West African sub-region. The analysis considered the standard food and nutrition security outcome indicators, namely, food consumption, livelihood change, nutritional status, and mortality. The impact of several contributing factors such as hazards and vulnerabilities, food availability, food access, food utilization, and stability was assessed on these outcomes variables. The results indicate that about 9.8 (9.12 %) million people of the analysed population require urgent assistance in the current period (October to December 2020). During the projected period (June to August 2021), these figures are expected to increase to 13.8 (12.9%) million people unless resilience driven interventions and humanitarian assistance in conflict affected LGAs is sustained.
The main results for zones/LGAs affected by food and nutrition insecurity in the 15 states of Adamawa, Bauchi, Benue, Borno, Gombe, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Niger, Plateau, Taraba, Sokoto, Yobe and the FCT indicated that 146 Zones/LGAs in the fifteen (15) states and the FCT are classified under the minimal phase of food and nutrition insecurity in the current period. During the projected period, 58 LGAs in Adamawa, Borno, Yobe, and Sokoto States are either in the crisis or emergency phase of food and nutrition insecurity.
