KEY DRIVERS OF THE CRISIS

Recurring natural disasters such as droughts and floods, combined with the volatility of markets, pushed many households and communities into chronic vulnerability.

Conflict in northern Nigeria and CAR has led to an influx of refugees in Cameroon and caused internal displacements. In addition, increasing insecurity in the Far North Region and along the border of CAR hampers humanitarian access.

Poor coverage of sanitation and access to clean water remain the main causes of malnutrition and water-borne diseases.
