In the light of the dramatic consequences of the conflict in Nigeria’s Lake Chad region, the EU has decided to provide an emergency funding of 26.5 million euro to the victims.

The EU’s new aid package will provide food aid, access to clean water and sanitation facilities, shelter, basic primary healthcare and education for children caught up in this conflict. 

The EU is one of the leading donors of humanitarian and development aid in Nigeria with more than €830 million provided since 2014. This funding aims to build fragile communities’ long-term resilience and offer them social protection through a more long-term and holistic approach. The EU also aims at building long-term resilience through its development assistance addressing the underlying causes of violent conflict – and by supporting basic services and helping people to support themselves.
