Intikane Hosting Area, Opened since April 2013 - Camp Profile as of July 2014

Context

The refugee hosting area (nomadic area) is a new concept developed by UNHCR with local authorities and communities in an attempt to adapt to the lifestyle of nomadic refugees. It differs from the traditional set-up of a refugee camp and allows refugees to settle freely in a vast pasture area with their livestock. The first "hosting area" was opened in Intekan in April 2013 with the successful relocation of nearly 8,000 people and their animals to the area. Previously, the refugees lived in spontaneous sites located at the border (Agando and Chinwaren).

Diffa / Niger: Besoins et Réponse Humanitaire (période du 15 août au 08 septembre 2014)

La situation sécuritaire du Nigéria voisin a forcé plus de 10 000 personnes à se réfugier dans la région de Diffa et les îles du Lac Tchad, au cours d’un seul mois, créant ainsi de nouveaux besoins urgents, particulièrement en abris, vivres, NFI, WASH et santé. Ce chiffre constituant le pic le plus élevé des arrivées depuis les 5 derniers mois, risque d’évoluer si la situation au Nigéria continue.

Cameroon border towns no safe haven for Nigerian refugees

Report
IRIN

MAROUA (CAMEROON), 17 September 2014 (IRIN) - Nigerians fleeing Boko Haram violence at home and seeking refuge in Cameroon border towns are still not safe.

Since June over 1,500 Nigerian families have crossed into Cameroon where they are mainly sheltering with host families or in local mosques, churches and schools, but following renewed Boko Haram attacks, some of these schools have been destroyed and refugees have had to flee further into Cameroon's interior.
