Commission européenne - Communiqué de presse République centrafricaine: l'UE débloque 26,5 millions € pour faire face à la crise humanitaire régionale Bruxelles, le 18 septembre 2018
La Commission européenne a alloué une aide d'urgence de 26,5 millions € en faveur des familles vulnérables touchées par la crise humanitaire en République centrafricaine et ses retombées dans les pays voisins.
SECURITY AND OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS
In August, Nigeria witnessed an upsurge in Boko Haram attacks in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States – resulting in more than 200 security incidents. Over 125 people were reportedly killed in the attacks.
Consequently, widespread attacks, counter-insurgency activities as well as impassable roads impeded access to people in need of assistance, especially in not-easy-to-reach areas.
The European Commission has allocated €26.5 million in emergency aid for vulnerable families affected by the humanitarian crisis in the Central African Republic and its spill-over into neighbouring countries.
The funding comes as some 2.5 million, half the country's population, are in need of assistance, with the crisis triggering an influx of refugees into neighbouring countries.
TOTAL REQUIREMENT US$ 5.0 billion
TOTAL PLAN FUNDING US$ 1.8 billion
UNMET REQUIREMENT US$ 3.2 billion
FUNDING OUTSIDE PLANS US$ 350 million
Prolonged conflict perpetuated by Boko Haram and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria-West Africa has spurred massive displacement and undermined food security in northeast Nigeria.
As of mid-2018, the insurgency had displaced approximately 1.7 million people within Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states and forced nearly 226,000 Nigerians to flee into neighboring Cameroon, Chad and Niger, according to the UN.
