Nigeria’s North East Region One Of World’s Largest Humanitarian Crisis Zone With 8.3 Million In Need, Says UN

North East Nigeria is one of the world’s largest humanitarian crises zone, with at least 8.3 million people in need of assistance in 2023, according to the United Nations (UN).

Violent conflict, the climate crisis, disease, and other risks, according to the just launched Global Humanitarian Overview (GHO), are putting their lives at risk.

The GHO provides an annual assessment of global humanitarian needs and how best to respond to them.

According to the GHO, in 2023, millions of vulnerable people in Nigeria and beyond will continue to face a daily struggle to survive.

It added that the scale of suffering borne every day by women, men and children across Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States remains undiminished; urgent action is needed now more than ever.

Addressing the needs of 5.4 million people will require close to US$ 1.2 billion.

“The bravery, dedication, resilience and commitment of frontline staff, most working for NGO partners, who deliver the bulk of humanitarian assistance humbles me. Without them, we would not be able to support the Government in addressing humanitarian needs in Nigeria,” said the Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Mr Matthias Schmale.

According to the statement, early next year, the 2023 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) for Nigeria will be launched setting out detailed and prioritised plans for meeting the needs of affected people in north-east Nigeria, coordinated across United Nations agencies and NGO partners, as well as with the Government of Nigeria.

Through this HRP, which is a part of the GHO, the humanitarian community will take collective action to save people’s lives and protect the most vulnerable.
