    Despite Security Challenges, Humanitarian Efforts are Having a Positive Effect on Extreme Hunger in Boko Haram Affected Areas of Nigeria (For the Media)

    In 2017, the World Food Programme and partners, under the leadership of the Nigerian government, managed to stave off famine in three conflict affected northeastern states. New data shows that the situation for extremely vulnerable families, while still very fragile, has improved further in the past six months due to sustained humanitarian assistance. WFP, however, remains concerned about the situation for families in areas that humanitarian assistance remains inaccessible due to insecurity. As of March, 2.3 million people people will need some form of food assistance in the three states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe in Nigeria’s northeast.

    Nearly Two-Thirds of the Population in South Sudan at Risk of Rising Hunger (For the Media)

    More than 7 million people in South Sudan – almost two-thirds of the population – could become severely food insecure in the coming months without sustained humanitarian assistance and access, three United Nations agencies warned today. Last year, FAO, WFP, UNICEF and their partners rolled out their largest ever aid campaign, saving lives and containing famine. In 2017, agency partners conducted more than 135 rapid humanitarian missions to the most hard-to-reach areas, providing life-saving assistance to over 1.8 million people.
