Insecurity Hinders Humanitarian Response In Northern Nigera

IRIN: Humanitarian response gap grows in northern Nigeria
“Humanitarian needs are mounting in northern Nigeria, where Boko Haram attacks have displaced 350,000 people since 2013, 290,000 of them internally; the rest are sheltering in Cameroon, Chad, and Niger. But the national response is inadequate and the international response minimal due to access hurdles and political sensitivities. … Displaced Nigerians stressed food, water, and sanitation as their priority concerns according to a rapid assessment mission by the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA)…” (3/14).
