    Action Against Hunger aims to pursue its humanitarian operations with an integrating approach WASH, Food security and nutrition and health services, including addressing climate change adaptation.

    The need to fulfil the humanitarian imperative calls for the mission to sustain presence in hard to reach areas and to implement operations in new areas with growing needs and challenges linked to banditry and criminal violence.

    The volatile and highly insecure environment calls for flexible remote programing and tailored modalities of operations that engages community members, leaders and local civil society to continue operations despite a pull out / minimization of staff presence on the ground.

    Security, social cohesion and humanitarian needs assessments, regular monitoring of implemented activities and measures to prevent aid diversion along with ensuring a qualitative implementation will be adopted within remote management modalities.

    Living conditions :

    Security context : The Nigerian security environment is volatile, especially in the NE and North West, where the mission is operating.

    Specific to the NE, the non-state armed groups(NSAG) regular attacks to the military, government and humanitarian installations has made majority of the locations inaccessible and the mission has prioritized use of UNHAS chopper while completely banned its staff from using road transport.

    Moreover, international staff are allowed to stay in some few locations outside the main state capitals of Yobe and Borno.

    IN the North west area of the country, abductions and killings have occurred regularly in the past against mission and the mission has strict measure to be followed while in these locations.

    AAH bases : The mission currently employs 25 international and 345 national staff, working from the coordination office in Abuja, field offices in Maiduguri, Potiskum, Dutse and Bade to address the humanitarian needs of the population.

    Road movement between Yobe and Borno is strictly prohibited for ACF staff, whether for business of personal reasons. Abductions and killings have happened in the road joining the 2 states.

  • Borno Maiduguri : The Maiduguri Base is the largest base on the mission, implementing humanitarian interventions of WASH;
  • FSL , Nutrition and Health, employing 182 staff. The Maiduguri base supports the Monguno and Damasak sub bases. The guesthouse is comfortable for international staff, there is curfew at 10 : 00pm, movements within Maiduguri town is not restrict but precaution measure have been put in place.

    Intenatiola staff currently are not allowed to spend the night in the sub-bases. Further all staff movements outside MMC / Jere is done only through UNHAS choppers, while movements outside the military trench in of the field office require HQ approval.

    Visa Specificities : There has been ongoing challenges in getting STR visa that are appropriate for work for the international staff .

    Nigeria has a quota system allowing each organisation to bring 3 international staff. While this remain a challenge, Nigeria Mission is making effort through its partners to secure appropriate visa for its staff which takes some time.

    Specific Regulation due to COVID : The Covid situation is under control for now, there has not been any spike in covid cases.

    The authorities have not applied any lockdowns, only new arrivals will be expected to be quarantined at their own places for 7 days.
