Nigeria: WFP Situation Report No. 13, 01 - 15 May 2017

Highlights

  • As of 15 May WFP, both directly and through partnerships, provided food assistance to approximately 546,000 beneficiaries in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States.
  • WFP’s response to the food crisis in Nigeria is critically underfunded. To minimize the impact of resource shortfalls on the affected population, WFP has developed a prioritization plan to focus on the most critically food insecure populations.
  • Considering the current level of underfunding, WFP will only be able to target in June 1.36 million of the most food insecure people in Northeast Nigeria instead of the 1.8 million originally planned.
