The Lake Chad Basin humanitarian emergency is among the most severe in the world. The protracted conflict has uprooted around 2.3 million people, stoked high levels of hunger and malnutrition, and subjected millions of civilians to extreme hardship. Insecurity is hampering the resumption of normal life, leaving conflict-affected families dependent on humanitarian assistance for survival.
