Overview

While sustaining the provision of essential life-saving and nutrition food assistance in Northeast Nigeria, WFP has been engaging in activities which protect people’s livelihoods, thus promoting longer term resilience. WFP’s approach to strengthening livelihoods and building resilience in Northeast Nigeria is aligned with a range of national level strategies and frameworks. These include the:

  • UN Humanitarian Response Plan for Northeast Nigeria (2018), within its Food Security Sector that aims at promoting resilience and durable solutions for affected people, including through restoration of livelihoods.
  • 2016 Buhari Plan entitled Rebuilding the North East, which encompasses an Agriculture and Food Security intervention strategy and a Small-Scale Entrepreneurship Support Programme. WFP co-leads the Food Security Sector with FAO.
