Some 3.3 million people in Cameroon, primarily in the Far North region, are in need of humanitarian assistance due to Boko Haram attacks and violent conflict in the Lake Chad basin which has internally displaced 242,000 persons. In addition to conflict, calamities such as food insecurity also contribute to under-development. The departments most affected by the crisis are Logone-et-Chari and Mayo-Sava which host 77% of the internally displaced persons. Cameroon also hosts 331,000 refugees from the Central African Republic and Nigeria.
