The ongoing conflict in North-East Nigeria has left more than 1.8 million people displaced in almost 2,140 locations across the six most affected states in the region (Displacement Tracking Matrix – DTM report RDXVIII), including 243 IDP camps and camp-like settings, with 56% of the IDP population being children. 92% of the population (1,619,662 individuals) are displaced in three states (Borno, Adamawa and Yobe).
Borno State hosts the majority of IDPs (1,373,564) and camps (189) while Adamawa, and Yobe hosts 139,362 and 106,736 individuals respectively, with 90% of the population in host families. New population movement were recorded in September with Gwoza having highest number of arrivals with about 2,877 new arrivals recorded in September followed by Kukawa and Ngala with 453 and 437 respectively while some locations like Lamurde and Mubi - South, in Adamawa, where departure were recorded (Emergency Tracking Tool DTM - reports September 2017).
Limited funding, extreme weather, access to secured land for site settlements and worsening security situations in LGAs such as Dikwa, Jere, Konduga in Borno and LGAs surrounding Borno State, like Madagali, continue deter provision of sustainable shelter solutions. The recent Cholera outbreak reported in Borno with hotspots in various displacement sites in Maiduguri MC, Dikwa, Monguno and Konduga has increased concerns on issue of camp congestion and overstretched WASH facilities.
Given the shelf-life of NFI items and constant new arrivals, sector partners are facing challenges to replenish NFI materials for households assisted at the earlier stage of the response. With these impediments, sector partners has so far reached only 37% of the annual shelter/NFI targets and 83% of CCCM/DMS targets for 2017.
As part of the development of the cholera prevention and response plan, the September Sector strategy under the cholera prevention and response plan is to support Site management teams in affected areas to scale-up camp management, site analysis, drainage, land advocacy for decongestion and development of tailored-made action planning (topographic analysis, disease mitigation improvements and management). This strategy aimed at creating a conducive environment and mitigate disease outbreak. The current shelter response is also focusing on the provision of emergency shelter reinforcement solutions to self-made shelters in addition to e-shelter constructions.
However, considering that partners lack the capacity to replace shelters built in the earlier response phase, increasing new arrivals on sites have made the sites in deteriorated conditions. Emergency and reinforced shelter constructions were reported ongoing in Dikwa (189), Monguno (1,169) Jere (230), and Yola North (200), as of September 2017, with current scale-up with the end of the rainy season.
Since January 2017, Shelter/NFI interventions have been provided to 381,178 individuals, while 659,004 individuals are being monitored under CCCM/DMS interventions, with biometric registration, capacity-building, camp working committee, site facilitation support and site improvements. The sector is also finalizing the revision of the NFI kits based on PDM as well as quality standards check specifications. To improve camp management, the sector is implementing its policy on basic reception standards through the planned establishment of reception centers in key receiving areas. Site facilitation support is provided in 109 camps in Borno (out of 189) and 16 camps in Adamawa (out of 17 sites) for sensitization, needs/gap analysis and to support camp governance and management. Additionally, 639,935 individuals were biometrically registered in 190 locations, 24% were registered in IDP sites and 76% in host communities, since January 2017, and overall 1,108,264 displaced populations registered since the start of the exercise at the end of 2015 in the three most affected states.
