Oslo Consultative Group on Prevention and Stabilization in the Lake Chad Region

The Far North is one of Cameroon’s poorest regions and has long experienced chronic under- development resulting in poverty, limited access to basic services, high levels of food insecurity and malnutrition. Social disparities and the weak presence of the state are factors that increase vulnerability. 325,5891 people are now displaced of which 235,193 IDPs, a steady increase from the 251,003 in January 2017. Insecurity continues with regular Boko Haram attacks. Between 25 and 30 security incidents have been recorded each month since the beginning of the year, with a significant increase in suicide bombings during Ramadan. The Far North is the second most affected region, following Borno State in Nigeria2.
