Northeast Nigeria Emergency Response and Recovery Strategy (2017-2019)
This document describes CRS' emergency response strategy to the Boko Haram crisis in Northeast Nigeria. As of June 2017, nearly 9 million people in NE Nigeria were in severe need of humanitarian assistance sparked by extreme poverty and drought in the region, as well as violence waged by Boko Haram extremists. Acute malnutrition rates have reached emergency threshold levels, and people have endured entire disruption of their social networks, livelihoods, and normal community fabric. This three-year strategy sets forth the blueprint developed by CRS and its local partners to provide relief and recovery assistance to 300,000 people in the most affected parts of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states.
