The multi-year humanitarian response plan (2017-2020) targets in 2020, 2.6 million people. The priority is to save lives and meet the acute and chronic needs of the most vulnerable populations. It is implemented in 8 of the 10 Regions of Cameroon (Adamawa, East, Far North, North, South-West, North-West, West and Littoral) and requires 321 million USD for its implementation.

3 strategic objectives:

1. SAVE LIVES AND ALLEVIATE SUFFERING AND IMPROVE THE PROTECTION OF CIVILIANS

  • Provide coordinated, innovative and flexible assistance to people in emergencies, as is necessary for their survival, in a manner that integrates and meets their distinct needs.
  • Advocate for the protection of civilians and humanitarian access, in conformity with national and international normative frameworks.
  • Promote and reinforce accountability towards affected populations in compliance with humanitarian principles.

2. SUPPORT AFFECTED POPULATIONS TO MEET THEIR BASIC NEEDS

  • Improve access to basic shelter/NFI, health, nutrition, WASH and education services for people affected by crises to live in dignity.
  • Multisectoral cash assistance is provided, where possible, to empower people with choice to address their needs, while also helping to boost local markets.

3. ENHANCE THE RESILIENCE OF VULNERABLE POPULATIONS

  • Reinforce the resilience capacities of vulnerable populations and support national actors to prevent and adapt to shocks.
