Nigeria Northeast: Humanitarian Emergency - Situation Report No. 3, 06 January 2017


  • The number of people receiving food assistance grew by 350 per cent in the past five months with food insecurity remaining the greatest concern among internally displaced people (IDPs).
  • 76 per cent of IDPs don’t want to return to their homes unless their security can be guaranteed. Assistance is required to reconstruct and repair destroyed or damaged homes, to encourage sustainable IDP returns.
  • One third of Borno State’s 700-plus medical facilities are completely destroyed with a third of the remaining facilities dysfunctional. The Health Sector is only 22 per cent funded, under the 2016 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP).
  • 75 per cent of the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) infrastructure was destroyed in the conflict. This puts pressure on the limited facilities, causing frequent breakages and downtimes.
