Nigeria: Boko Haram Insurgency

Donors have committed or contributed US$50.1 million in response to the humanitarian needs in Nigeria and surrounding countries in relation to the Boko Haram insurgency since January 2014. Since the start of 2015, there has been no funding reported to Nigeria; Niger and Cameroon have received a combined total of US$1.5 million in 2015 in response to the emergency needs of Nigerian refugees in their host countries.

Figures from the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) suggest over 1.1 million people have been displaced as a result of the violent insurgency attributed to Boko Haram since 2009; other estimates put the figure higher at over 1.5 million. A recent ACAPS briefing note suggests that at least 9,857 people have been killed since January 2014.
