    • In Diffa, Tillabéry and Maradi, insecurity continues to fuel internal displacement and disrupts livelihoods. Humanitarian assistance is keeping food insecurity in Diffa in Stressed! (IPC Phase 2!). Crisis (IPC Phase 3) persists in Tillabéry.

    • The harvests led to an average level of agricultural production and local opportunities for income. Availability and access to food offer Minimal (IPC Phase 1) food security outcomes for most households.

    • In certain pastoral areas and areas affected by floods, low availability of fodder and cereal stocks are pushing poor households to migrate early with their livestock to minimize expenses related to the upkeep of their animals. These households are experiencing Stressed (IPC Phase 2) levels of food insecurity.

    • In Maradi, ongoing registration of refugees shows a provisionary number of 40,000 Nigerian refugees living with host families. However, the added pressure on host families’ resources is alleviated via humanitarian assistance through the Rapid Response Mechanism.
