Northeastern Nigeria - Situation report July 2018
Jul 2018

Key messages

  • FAO is mid-way into its rainy season programme to bolster the food production of 150 000 targeted farming families (1 050 000 people) in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe, thereby enhancing their food security, nutritional status and capacity to generate income from farming.
  • Boosting smallholder productivity during the 2018 rainy season means reduced humanitarian costs to address food insecurity in late 2018 and 2019.
  • FAO faces a funding gap of USD 18 million to boost agricultural production in the forthcoming 2018/19 dry season (beginning September 2018) as well as year-round livelihood activities in northeastern Nigeria.
