In recent years, Northeast Nigeria has been grappling with a complex and devastating humanitarian crisis. The BAY (Borno, Adamawa and Yobe) region has become a hotbed of violence, displacement, and despair. This humanitarian context is characterized by a multitude of interconnected factors that have led to widespread suffering and a desperate need for assistance. The extremist group Boko Haram emerged in 2009 and has unleashed a wave of violence, targeting civilians, schools, and infrastructure. Their attacks have led to the displacement of millions of people, forced to flee their homes and seek refuge in camps or host communities.
Furthermore, the conflict has severely disrupted the livelihoods of the population, exacerbating food insecurity and malnutrition. As farmers have been unable to tend to their fields and markets have been destroyed, the availability of food has dramatically decreased. This, coupled with climatic variabilities, has resulted in a severe humanitarian crisis, with about 4.3 million people currently facing acute food insecurity (IPC 3 and above as per CH of March 2023). The affected populations face multiple challenges including lack of basic services such as health care, education, adequate shelter, etc.
Addressing this humanitarian crisis requires a multi-faceted approach that goes beyond immediate emergency response. It is crucial to address the root causes of the conflict, promote peacebuilding initiatives, and ensure the protection of civilians. Additionally, efforts must be made to towards durable solutions. The situation demands a comprehensive and sustained response. It requires strong coordination between humanitarian and development partners , the government and military actors. Access to affected populations in conflict-affected areas, particularly in hard-to-reach locations, poses a significant challenge due to insecurity.

Borno State Government promotes a sustainable solution to the situation of IDPs in the State. Discussions are ongoing on how UN and other partners could support these initiatives ensuring that proposed solutions are sustainable and protect the people we serve.
Fighting Hunger Worldwide.
However, institutional challenges, such as differing mandates, bureaucratic processes, and limited capacity, often impede effective coordination and hinder timely and efficient response efforts.
