The security situation in south-eastern Niger remains a challenge for humanitarian actors notwithstanding a drop in the number of attacks by Boko Haram in the last three months. Ongoing military operations by the Nigerien Defense Forces and the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) and other security measures are restricting humanitarian access to areas along the Komadougou River. As of 31 March, more than 242, 000 people were displaced in the Diffa region according to the regional authorities.

The security situation in south-eastern Niger continues to deteriorate due to repeated attacks by Boko Haram. Since the first Boko Haram attack on the Nigerien territory in February 2015 to date, several other incursions have been reported in the region.
These attacks have caused the displacement of thousands of people. As a consequence, the humanitarian needs in the region have increased, in a context characterized by limited resources for an adequate response and by localized access challenges.
