In early March 2015, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) registered more than 1.2 million people displaced within the country due to conflict and inter-communal violence. In addition, over 200,000 people fled to Chad, Cameroon and Niger. The need to understand the full impact of displacement is critical as humanitarian actors scale up response in terms of protection, shelter, food as well as education and health services to the internally displaced persons (IDPs). In order to do that accurate data is required but that remains a challenge in Nigeria. Efforts have been made by some partners in increasing their capacity in the field but the gap continues to be noticed in coverage areas. The capacity of partners - either engaged in development activities or in humanitarian assistance - needs to be enhanced to enable credible data collection that will help in understanding displacement dynamics and plan appropriate responses.
In scaling up its presence in Nigeria from an advisory role that of a country office, OCHA will provide the Humanitarian Coordinator (HC), Deputy Humanitarian Coordinator (DHC), Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) and the entire humanitarian community with required support to implement the Transformative Agenda and reinforce the existing coordination mechanisms in Nigeria to understand the displacement impact and to better respond rapidly to the needs of people dramatically affected.
