Cameroon: Floods - Emergency appeal n° MDRCM014, final report

Summary: In response to the heavy rains of August 2012 that led to flooding in the northern regions (North and Far North) of Cameroon that washed away farmlands, livestock, houses, household items, and even led to the loss of some lives, a DREF operation was initiated to provide assistance to the affected populations of these regions. Considering the magnitude of the situation, this DREF was upgraded into an emergency appeal, since 15,720 people were displaced in the North and 18,178 in the Far North Region, thus, giving it the magnitude of a major disaster.
