Nigeria: Humanitarian Dashboard (as of 30 September 2016)



The scope and scale of the humanitarian crisis in Nigeria's north-east continues to unfold as humanitarian actors struggle to keep up with growing needs for aid and services across all program sectors in an expanding field of operation. The latest Cadre Harmonise Analysis shows an increasing number of people in need of food assistance with over 4.4 million in food security phases 3 to 5. While some sectors continue to make progress in meeting assistance targets, others face constraints in human, financial and operational capacity. A revision of humanitarian projects to incorporate operations in newly accessible areas brings the total humanitarian funding need for 2016 to US$ 484 million of which only 25 per cent is funded. The much-needed increase in funding has failed to keep pace with these additional requirements however, resulting in severe funding shortfalls for many humanitarian partners.
