Nigeria: Rann ISWG Mission. Main findings and recommendations - 7 April 2017

Key findings: 
FOOD SECURITY: New arrivals have not received any food and condiments. Critical gap of safe cooking options and access to firewood, with increased protection risk for population fetching wood. SHELTER/CCCM and NFIs: ICRC projects 500 emergency shelter, 167 allocated, remaining 331 under construction. 500 planned + 500 mud-house support in host community. 232 HH currently having no shelter and sharing their shelters with others, living in congested situation. Tents are not large enough to accommodate the family. Need of Kitchen set for the majority of the camp population who is using unsafe cooking practices. NEMA/SEMA not on the ground hence no camp management, projected deployment of site facilitators however lack of hub and structure to allow the staff to remain on the ground. No NFI / shelter pipeline to respond to the new arrivals. SITE VIABILITY: 3 sites requiring important drainage support and backfilling (camp elevation). Presence of a cemetery for the recent victims of the bomb by the Rann IDP camp / host community, increasing the risk of illness during the rainy season. Fire outbreaks recorded and need for fire prevention mobilization. WASH: 5 solar points; 3 Hand pumps (ICRC); 5 hand pumps (OXFAM), 3 hand pumps (MSF) Most of the water points functioning in Rann is salty. 17 latrines in General hospital,10 in boarding primary school (OXFAM). A Minimum of 700 latrines are needed for the entire population, which represents a gap of 97% (OXFAM currently planning for 500 latrines). Additional sanitation facilities are critically needed for the Returnees and IDPS. HEALTH: no information available on current mortality ratio; referral to secondary health level facilities hampered by insecurity (need to reach Maiduguri by road; some occasional referrals in Cameroon), need more partners with additional 1-2 health facility. Hygiene is a big issue especially open defection due to lack of enough number of latrines. NUTRITION: MSF screened 953 children aged 6-59 months screened at triage, 3% SAM and 13.5% GAM. 129 children integrated into the cohort of Nut care. Mass Screening:1, 569 children of 6-59 months with SAM: 2.6% and 12.7 of GAM. During focus group discussions, evidences that RUTF is shared with the whole family in the absence of food distribution for new arrival. EDUCATION AND CHILD PROTECTION: situation from previous assessments remains with no coverage currently. 16,000 school-age children out of school ; at least 20 teachers available onsite; school buildings destroyed. For CP identification of UASC and of cases of CAAFAG to be conducted, provision of PSS a core need given recent events.
