According to the March 2018 Cadre Harmonisé (CH) findings the number of people facing acute food insecurity in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States has significantly reduced over the past year from 4.7 million (March to May 2017) to 2.6 million (October to December 2017) to 2.3 million (March to May 2018). The food and nutrition insecurity situation analysis report also projected that the figure might increase to 3.2 million people during the lean period of June- August 2018.
During the month of March, both directly and through partnerships, WFP provided food and nutrition assistance to 1.2 million people (94 percent of the plan) through in-kind distributions (67 percent of total intervention) and cash-based transfers (33 percent) in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States.
