Nigeria: food and nutrition outlook, July-August 2020

Published : March 2020

By June-August 2020, some  7.1 million people are projected to be in a crisis situation or worse, including 1.8 million people in Borno state, 1.2 million in Yobe state and 0.7 million in Adamawa state. RPCA members recommended formulating targeted response plans for vulnerable populations on the basis of the Cadre harmonisé analysis results. They called for the rapid and co-ordinated deployment of food and humanitarian assistance in areas with limited humanitarian access, including using military operations to opening up access to vulnerable populations. The analysis was validated by key stakeholders on 12 March 2020 in Abuja, Nigeria. Conducted by CILSS, the Government of Nigeria as well as technical and financial partners, the analysis covered 16 out of 36 federal states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT): Adamawa, Bauchi, Benue, Borno, Gombe, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Niger, Plateau, Sokoto, Taraba, Yobe and Zamfara.
