Food and nutrition assistance to Nigerian and Central African refugees and host populations in Cameroon

The East, Adamaoua, North and Far-North regions are the poorest in Cameroon. Furthermore, there has been a significant influx of refugees from the Central African Republic to the East and Adamaoua regions, and recently, from Nigeria to the North and Far-North regions, compounding pre-existing social and economic challenges. In March 2013, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees registered over a thousand new refugees from the Central African Republic in addition to the 87,000 
already present. About 10,000 Nigerian refugees are hosted in the North and Far-North, regions already affected by recurrent drought and flooding. A February 2013 food assessment carried out by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and WFP found 38,900 severely food-insecure and 173,000 moderately food-insecure Cameroonians in the North and Far-North regions.
