MAROUA, 30 janvier 2015 (IRIN) - Plus d’un demi-million de personnes dans la région de l’Extrême-Nord au Cameroun ont un besoin urgent d’aide alimentaire, a déclaré le gouvernement. En effet, à cause des attaques du groupe extrémiste Boko Haram, les agriculteurs ont déserté leurs champs, les marchés locaux ont fermés et la circulation des personnes et des biens a cessé.

L’insécurité alimentaire, notamment le long de la frontière, empire à cause de l’arrivée régulière de réfugiés nigérians qui dépendent souvent des communautés hôtes pour se nourrir.

Cependant, la situation de la sécurité alimentaire pourrait s’aggraver entre janvier et mars 2015, notamment dans les zones où une mortalité excessive du bétail ou des pluies irrégulières ont été enregistrés.
