Overall objective of this project is to contribute to ensuring an adequate humanitarian response to the needs of IDPs in North East Nigeria. IOM aims at meeting critical needs identified in the CCCM/Shelter/NFI sectors, support and strengthen the humanitarian response overall, as well as improve the access and intervention of the humanitarian community through the provision of WASH facilities in four deep humanitarian hubs.

Specific objective 1: Track and analyze risk and vulnerability, integrating finding into humanitarian and development programing

Specific objective 2: Support vulnerable population to better cope with shocks by responding earlier to warning signals, by reducing post-crisis recovery time and by building capacity of national actors

Specific objective 3: Deliver coordinated and integrated life-saving assistance to people affected by emergency

Specific objective 4: Improvement of the service delivery to beneficiaries in conflict-affected areas through the provision of WASH facilities for the finalization of the establishment of four humanitarian hubs in Ngala, Bama Dikwa and Monguno.

 

Major outputs of the project:

  • DTM teams have undertaken IDP assessments and carried out biometric registration in camps and host communities in Adamawa and Borno. The success on obtaining detailed data to inform the humanitarian response highly depends on the security situation on the ground.

 

  •  IOM has provided conflict-affected populations with Emergency Shelter and NFI kits. IOM identified locations where non-food items and emergency shelters were most needed and conducted distributions of NFI kits for 12,381 IDPs living in camps and host communities in Adamawa and Borno, as well as 4,900 IDPs individuals were identified to the CCCM and ES/NFI working group and provided with emergency shelters

 

  • Enhancement of coordination and mechanisms to provide a concerted response in Nigeria, including in camps and newly displacement situation, has been achieved through the sector coordination mechanisms. While the response remains fragile due to the lack of resources on the ground, limited capacities, logistics and access issues for partners, the sector has been one of the key pillars for the development of field-based coordination mechanisms.

 

  • WASH facilities have been provided in four humanitarian hubs in newly accessible areas where humanitarian actors are providing support to life-saving activities in Borno State.
