Three countries (Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad) in the Lake Chad region are affected by the ongoing, Boko Haram conflict. ACT members have carried out an assessment and have cross - checked the results with the information received while participating in different humanitarian coordination platforms (UN clusters, technical working groups, etc.); and have determined that the priority sectors are the following: 1. Food security 2. WASH 3. GBV/Protection 4. Livelihoods/early recovery

Three countries (Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad) in the Lake Chad region are affected by the ongoing, Boko Haram conflict. As the needs continue to increase, this slow - onset forgotten crisis
is urgently requiring attention to save lives and maintain human dignity. Approximately 21 million people live in the conflict - affected areas, of which 2.6 million are displaced and in dire need of support.

The conflict has had devastating effects on the region, visible not only through the widespread destruction of homes, livelihoods, infrastructure and large - scale displacements, but also in the conflict - induced trauma and fear within the affected communities. The already grim situation is further compounded by climate change, as the Lake Chad- the people's principle source of income and livelihoods is receding at an alarming rate. In some of the affected areas, humanitarian access is often hampered by insecurity. Access may also be limited due to the rainy season (June - August).

Moreover, social and political institutions in the region are fragile or underdeveloped and corruption is widespread. The already critical situation is even more desperate the conflict affected people with vulnerabilities. There is a pressing necessity to provide immediate assistance to minimize loss of life and to ensure that the needs of the most vulnerable are covered first. The situation in the region is deteriorating as States are unable to provide adequate services to the affected communities coupled with a decrease in humanitarian funding as result of donor fatigue. Although humanitarian actors are present in the Lake Chad basin, the needs are very high as there are several gaps in service provision.

ACT members have carried out an assessment and have cross - checked the results with the information received while participating in different humanitarian coordination platforms (UN clusters, technical working groups, etc.); and have determined that the priority sectors are the following:
