THE UNSPOKEN HUMANITARIAN CRISIS : NIGERIA


Par : David Ford Johnson (expert associé) THE UNSPOKEN HUMANITARIAN CRISIS : NIGERIA

There are currently 7.0M persons in need in northeastern Nigeria, of which, 3.0M people find themselves in areas currently inaccessible to the humanitarian community – for security reasons intrinsically tied to the presence of Boko Haram

Although not well documented, assessed, or widely broadcast, the Boko Haram-induced crisis is anything but recent.
In fact, with 61.5% of the IDP population displaced since 2014, the crisis is quickly entering a protracted phase; though, the bulk of the humanitarian response is – at least hopefully – yet to come.

David Ford Johnson pens this editorial column on the vicious circle in which Nigeria has been caught for the last couple years. Mr. Ford Johnson is a humanitarian aid specialist and an associate researcher at OCCAH.
