AGADEZ, Niger – Leur existence se limite à attendre dans la chaleur. Nombre d’entre eux doivent dormir directement sur le sol. Mais au moins, ils sont maintenant en sécurité.

AGADEZ, Niger - Their lives have been reduced to waiting in the heat. Many must sleep on the ground. But at least now they are safe.
They are refugees, asylum seekers and persons of concern for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. They wait now here, in Agadez, Niger. Most are Sudanese, and many have appalling stories to tell.
Emergency Response Plan for North West and South West regions was launched on May 27 to assist 160,000 displaced persons in these two Anglophone regions with the total budget of $15.1 million.
- Tensions remain in the North-West and South-West Regions where the English-speaking population has been mobilizing for greater autonomy. Violent incidents have been observed since October 2017 and have intensified since the beginning of 2018, with the development of armed groups. The situation has caused significant internal displacement and 21 000 Cameroonian refugees are registered in Nigeria to date.
Now in its ninth year, the violent conflict in north-east Nigeria has caused one of the most severe crises in the world, with 7.7 million people in need of humanitarian assistance.
Here are six things you should know about the crisis:
1. Civilians have borne the brunt of the crisis
More UN peacekeepers killed while protecting civilians in Central African Republic (CAR)
I- CONTEXTE ET JUSTIFICATION
Depuis 2016, le Cameroun connaît dans ses Régions du Nord-Ouest et du Sud-Ouest, des perturbations sociopolitiques. Cette situation est partie des revendications corporatistes auxquelles le Gouvernement, par la voie de la concertation et du dialogue avec les organisations syndicales concernées a apporté des réponses appropriées, allant parfois même au-delà des attentes des partenaires sociaux.
Context: The crisis currently affecting the Lake Chad Basin countries is a result of a conflict with Non-State Armed Groups and has triggered significant displacement of populations. As of 20 June 2018, Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria are hosting an estimated 4,187,247 affected individuals made up of internally displaced persons (IDPs), refugees (both in- and out-of-camp), returnees (former IDPs and returnees from abroad) and third country nationals (TCNs).
On 16 June, a new attack by two suicide bombers was perpetrated in Limani, in the Far North Region of Cameroon, near the border with Nigeria, killing one eight year-old child. The Far North Region is severely affected by security incidents, such as incursions and raids in villages near the border. This violence has caused the internal displacement of around 210 000 in the region.

YAOUNDE, CAMEROON — It is a bright Tuesday morning, with children hawking goods to drivers and passersby on the congested streets of Yaounde. The number of these sidewalk sellers is increasing with the ongoing conflict in Cameroon's English-speaking northwest and southwest regions, where fighting between armed separatists and government troops has shut down schools and sent thousands of children fleeing to safer ground.
