Nigeria: Cadre Harmonisé Update Analysis to Identify Risk Areas and Populations in Acute Food and Nutrition Insecurity in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States

Key findings: 

Food Consumption: Food
consumption level across the
three states is below the
acceptable threshold for a majority of
the population with Borno and Yobe
recording the worst situation
Evolution of livelihoods:
Livelihoods in the three states
are stressed and disrupted
especially for IDPs who have
lost all assets and have limited
income opportunities.
Nutrition: Malnutrition
prevalence in many areas is
above the critical threshold.
However, in some of the
worst affected areas (IDP camps and
recently accessible areas), the
nutrition situation is above the
emergency level.
Mortality: Although data on
Under Five Mortality Rate
(U5MR) and Crude Mortality
Rate (CMR) remains limited, some
extremely high rates have been
recorded in Bama LGA (Borno). There
is concern that these rates may also
be occurring in non-accessible areas
where there is limited information.
