Supporting life-saving, coordinated and effective response
The humanitarian situation in Somalia deteriorated in 2016 due to protracted conflict and prolonged drought conditions in most parts of the country. By December 2016, the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance had reached 5 million, a 28 per cent increase from 3.9 million in February.
North-east Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen are facing devastating humanitarian crises. To avert a humanitarian catastrophe, the United Nations and our partners have dramatically scaled up operations.
Together with the World Bank, the UN is also stepping up cooperation between humanitarian and development partners. By strengthening such links, we aim to not only save lives, but to build people’s resilience to withstand future shocks. But ending conflicts is vital to assure protection of civilians and access to people in need.

Excellencies, Ministers, Distinguished Guests,
Welcome to this high-level event on the humanitarian situation in Nigeria and the Lake Chad Region.
Last week, immediately on starting this job, I visited Diffa in Niger and Borno in Nigeria: two areas that have been severely impacted by the Boko Haram insurgency.
I went there to meet people affected by the crisis, and to bring their voices to you here today.

(New York, 19 September 2017): The Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Mr. Edward Kallon, strongly condemns the deadly attacks targeting innocent civilians in Konduga, Banki and Ngala areas of Borno State in conflict-struck north-east Nigeria.
Four attacks in recent weeks, three of which were carried out by suicide bombers, have claimed the lives of over 45 civilians and injured countless others, and are indicative of a surge in the brutal violence triggered by a regionalized conflict that is now in its eighth year.

16,000 IDPs FLEE FRESH CLASHES IN BASSE-KOTTO
Recent clashes between armed groups in two localities in the southern Basse-Kotto prefecture have forced around 16,000 displaced people to flee for safety in the neighbouring Ouaka prefecture. They were initially uprooted from their homes in May. The displacement has left them in desperate need of emergency assistance, especially shelter, basic household items, food, water, hygiene and protection.
16 000 PDI FUIENT DE NOUVEAUX AFFRONTEMENTS EN BASSE-KOTTO
Les affrontements récents entre groupes armés dans deux localités de la préfecture de la BasseKotto, au sud, ont obligé environ 16 000 personnes déplacées à trouver refuge dans la préfecture voisine de la Ouaka. Elles avaient déjà fui leurs foyers en mai. Ce nouveau déplacement les a laissé dans le besoin désespéré d‘une aide d'urgence, en particulier d’abris, articles ménagers de base, nourriture, eau, hygiène et protection.
