Nigeria: 2020 HRP Addendum Covid-19 Response Plan


This document is an addendum to the 2020 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) and it aims to address the additional needs of people affected by COVID-19 in Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe (BAY states).

The 2020 HRP informs the humanitarian pillar of the broader United Nations Integrated Response Framework for preparedness and response to the impact COVID-19, which complements the Government of Nigeria’s (GoN) National COVID-19 Multi Sectoral Pandemic Response Plan, and integrates health response, stabilization, and recovery, peacebuilding and security, access to social services, livelihoods and economic recovery.

The Addendumtherefore outlines only the humanitarian component of the preparedness and response that complements GoN’s health response to the COVID-19outbreak in the BAY states. The activities underpinning the projects in the Addendum are clustered in three categories:
(a) Existing projects that may be shifted and repositioned as a consequence of COVID-19;
(b) COVID-19 non-health interventions as established under the Programme Criticality (PC) assessment 1 and 2 (PC1 and PC2) and the Business Continuity Plan (BCP) on food, nutrition, WASH, protection, Camp Coordination Camp Management (CCCM), shelter and NFI response;
and (c) health specific COVID-19 activities defined as PC1.

The timeframe for projects in the Addendum is nine months, for an additional estimated US$ 246 million required to contribute to the containment of COVID-19 outbreak in the BAY States and reduce the humanitarian consequences of the pandemic and interruptions of the ongoing humanitarian assistance. The funding requirement is an additional request to the initial US$ 834 million requested under the 2020 HRP.
