UN plans to raise millions to combat food insecurity in North-East Nigeria

The United Nations (UN) plans to raise $306 million as part of efforts to combat food insecurity in North-East Nigeria.

This is where millions are projected to face severe food crisis during the lean season from June to October.

UN Resident Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Mohamed Fall officially launched the plan in Abuja on Tuesday, stating that the UN goal is to gather resources to address the food insecurity and malnutrition crisis in Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe.

Fall referenced the results from the March 2024 Cadre Harmonisé analysis, which projected that at least 32 million people across 26 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) will face a food crisis from June to August 2024.

He noted that this figure, compared to the 26 million from the previous year, represents one of the highest totals of food-insecure people worldwide.
