Project General Description

This emergency aid operation follows the humanitarian disaster in the Diffa region caused by acts of violence perpetrated by Boko Haram between May 19 and June 16, 2016. More than 40,000 people have fled conflict-affected areas (about 60% of the displaced are children according to humanitarian organizations). This project aims to improve sanitary conditions, access to drinking water and sanitation services to the affected and/or displaced populations following Boko Haram's recent attacks. The proposed intervention, as part of this support, involves three components, namely: (i) a component related to multifaceted sanitary assistance to the populations, which will consist mainly in providing health care access; (ii) a water and sanitation component providing children and women, particularly vulnerable, with access to drinking water and sanitation services, and (iii) a coordination component for emergency aid management. The implementation of this emergency operation is planned for a period not exceeding six months.

Project Objectives

This project main objective is to improve sanitary conditions, access to drinking water and sanitation to the affected and/or displaced populations following Boko Haram's attacks. In other words, this project consists in contributing to the improvement of sanitary conditions, access to drinking water and sanitation services for the displaced populations of Diffa. In more specifics, the project aims to: (i) contribute to the reduction of mortality and morbidity by improving access to health care for the displaced, internal and refugee indigenous populations in the Diffa region; and (ii) provide the most vulnerable, children and women, with access to drinking water and sanitation services in accordance with basic hygiene practices.

Beneficiaries

This operation specifically targets women and children who make up more than half of the displaced populations.
