Published : November 2020
Between 2016-20, northeast Nigeria counted on average some 3.7 million people in urgent need of humanitarian and food assistance every year. The number of acutely food-insecure people reached a peak in Borno in June-August 2017 (3.7 million people). RPCA members already sounded the alarm in December 2016 and released a declaration to encourage international partners to develop more structural responses based on a long-term vision and a recovery plan for these conflict-affected areas.
