+ 9,700 new arrivals in Sayam Forage Camp since January 2021.

The Diffa region hosts 265,696* Nigerian refugees, internally displaced persons, and Nigerien returnees. More than 80% of them live in spontaneous settlements. (*Government figures)

Since April 2019, movements are restricted on many roads following attacks, kidnappings, and the increased use of explosive devices.
