Ten years into the conflict, the humanitarian crisis in Nigeria’s Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States remains one of the most severe in the world with the third highest level of internal displacement in Africa. Predominantly a protection crisis, the situation is characterized by increased food insecurity, forced displacement, chronic poverty and epidemic diseases. With agriculture being the main source of food and income in the North-East, diversifying agricultural livelihood opportunities for vulnerable households, with an emphasis on women and youth, is central to prevent a further increase in food insecurity.
