Over 2.1 million people are currently displaced in North Eastern region of Nigeria, over 1 million people are struggling with severe food insecurity in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states and about 400,000 children aged less than five years are at risk of severe acute malnutrition. The Nigerian Government recently declared a nutrition emergency in the North East, yet the response so far has been inadequate.
