Lake Chad basin crisis OCHA managed pooled funds (as of 21 February 2017)


Over 20 million people across the Lake Chad Basin are in need of humanitarian assistance. Since 2014, the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) has allocated $144 million for urgent aid to people affected by conflict and deepening food crisis. More than one third of the allocations supported humanitarian operations in Nigeria helping displaced people and vulnerable host communities. The Nigeria Humanitarian Fund (NHF) will further bolster the response by making funds directly available to a wide range of relief partners, including NGOs. CERF and NHF provide complementary funding towards activities prioritized at the local level under the leadership of the Humanitarian Coordinator.
