Current Operations
Providing life-saving support to households in Cameroon, Chad, and Niger directly affected by insecurity in northern Nigeria

This operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 2 (see below).

Since early 2013, returnee and refugee populations have been fleeing northern Nigeria acrossland and water borders to Cameroon, Chad and Niger. Until recently, numbers were relatively low and populations were supported under WFP or partner existing activities. However, growing insecurity in 2014 has led to important peaks in arrivals, most recently in August 2014, and the growing number of arrivals is anticipated to continue. In Cameroon, cross-border insecurity is creating waves of internal displacement, and disrupting normal economic and planting activities in areas of the Far North.
