The rainy season in northeast Nigeria lasts for three to four months (June- September). The rains cause flooding and can limit road access to several areas of ongoing humanitarian operations. In preparation for the rainy season in 2017, the Logistics Sector has developed a Contingency Plan in May 2017 for access options and cargo prepositioning in support of partners’ continuous programme implementation. In November 2017, the Logistics Sector has launched a survey to collect feedback from partners on what challenges they faced during the rainy season, how they can better prepare ahead of the rainy season next year as well as what support could be required from the Logistics Sector. The online survey composed of 18 questions, was available from 1 to 12 November.
