Coverage against targets

Need analysis

The reporting period saw a continued displacement of persons from the BAY states. A total of 33,614 individuals (ind), with Gwoza (5,688 ind) and Dikwa (3,901 ind) LGAs recording the highest number of arrivals. Additionally, major arrivals were recorded in Askira/Uba (3,749 ind), Monguno (2,416 ind), Bama (2,165 ind), Michika (1,891 ind), Biu (1,472 ind), Mubi North (1,468 ind) , Mobbar (1,161 ind), Gombi (1,135 ind), Mubi South (1,009 ind) and Girei (1,001 ind) LGA. The sector partners provided emergency shelter solutions and non-food items (NFI) to 12,270 households (HH) but still there are more gaps to be filled.-


During the reporting period 4,578HH received NFI kits, 6,694HH received emergency shelter solution support, 528HH received reinforced/transitional shelter solutions and 470HH were supported with housing repair and improvements while 100HH received cash/voucher for NFI.-

Gaps / challenges

Congestion continuing to pose great challenges in every aspect of standardizing camp management in camps in the Northeast and decongestion of highly congested camps and reception centres in the BAY states remains a key priority. Over 179,000HH require shelter and NFI support to cope with the harsh weather condition. The fluid state of security has limited the sector partners access to locations of interventions. Additionally, sector partners are faced with funding constraints which is slowing down responses to the needs identified.-
