  • In October, WFP provided food and nutrition assistance to 699,000 people in BAY states (80 percent of the plan) through in-kind food assistance and cash-based transfers, complemented by preventive nutrition assistance activities.
  • As per the latest Cadre Harmonis√© (CH) report, the number of people in need of food assistance in BAY states, has fallen from 2.6 to 1.7 million over the past year. The decrease can be attributed to above average rainfall and continued humanitarian assistance. However, conflict and displacement continue to negatively impact farming and other livelihood activities, and without sustained humanitarian support, this number is predicted to rise to 2.7 million people within the next six months.
