Tchad — Suivi des Urgences 127 (21 janvier 2022)

Le 21 décembre 2021, suite à un conflit intercommunautaire dans la région de l’Extrême-Nord au Cameroun, 104 ménages (745 individus), constitués de Tchadiens, ont quitté les cantons de Pouce et Maouda (Cameroun), où ils vivaient depuis plus de 40 ans, pour se réfugier dans la localité de Katao (dans la sous-préfecture du Katao, département du Mayo-Mini, province du Mayo-Kebbi Est). Ces personnes sont accueillies dans le bâtiment de la sous-préfecture et ont reçu une assistance alimentaire de base de la part de la communauté hôte. Il y a des besoins urgents en vivres et articles non alimentaires (notamment couvertures, nattes et ustensiles de cuisine). Ces informations ont été collectées à travers une évaluation rapide conduite sur terrain par les équipes de l’OIM et de la Commission Nationale d'accueil de Réinsertion des Réfugies (CNARR).

Nigeria — North Central & North West Flash Report #84 (03 - 09 January 2022)

Nigeria's north-central and north-west zones are afflicted with a multidimensional crisis that is rooted in long-standing tensions between ethnic and religious groups and involves attacks by criminal groups and banditry/hirabah (such as kidnapping and grand larceny along major highways). The crisis has accelerated during the past years because of the intensification of attacks and has resulted in widespread displacement across the region.


Between 03 and 09 January 2022, armed clashes between herdsmen and farmers; and bandits and local communities have led to new waves of population displacement. Following these events, rapid assessments were conducted by DTM (Displacement Tracking Matrix) field staff with the purpose of informing the humanitarian community and government partners, and enable targeted response. Flash reports utilise direct observation and a broad network of key informants to gather representative data and collect information on the number, profile and immediate needs of affected populations.
