West Africa Floods: Situation Update #5, December 10, 2012
More than 10 million people have been affected by the recent flooding in West Africa. Rainfall has eased across much of the region and clean-up and reconstruction efforts are underway. Nigeria remains the most affected country with 2.3 million people still displaced. There is also renewed flooding in Niger following upstream rains in Guinea. Relief efforts have now shifted to medium and long-term prevention measures.
Response missions to Cameroon, Benin, Niger and Chad were recently completed and a Bank-led impact assessment scoping mission is currently underway in Nigeria.
