Nigeria Capacity Gap Analysis
Between 2009 and 2019, the Boko Haram insurgency has affected around 13.4 million people in North East of Nigeria. Out the total affected, around 7.1 million are in need of humanitarian assistance while 6.2 million are targeted for humanitarian assistance. To date, 1.8 million people are reported internally displaced and new displacement continues due to the insurgency, in the states of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa. The crises have impacted women, men, girls and boys, and people with special needs differently, and their vulnerabilities as well coping mechanisms vary.
In 2013, OCHA brought together partners to strategize on Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) for the response in north-east. The Caritas Foundation with support from the Catholic Relief Services assumed cash coordination leadership through 2014 and 2015. During this period, the CALP Network organized series of trainings to strengthen partners’ capacity and reviewed the CWG coordination mechanism and the CWG Terms of Reference.
