Since 2009, the Boko Haram insurgency has crippled north eastern Nigeria. Borno State continues to be most affected, with over 1.8 million internally displaced persons (IDPs). Recent advances by the Nigerian Army and the Multinational Joint Task Force have improved humanitarian access in 22 of the 27 Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Borno, but have also revealed the extent of the crisis. In newly accessible areas, basic infrastructure has been destroyed, essential services are non-existent, and most local governance systems are not functional.

In support to the UN-led coordinated humanitarian response in the region, INTERSOS is implementing a seven months CP and EiE multisectorial project that address critical gaps as indicated by the CP and Education Sectors over four sites for highly vulnerable IDPs, new arrivals and host communities.
