New displacement crisis emerges as Nigerians flee to the Maradi region
Over the last three months, a new displacement crisis has emerged in the border region of Maradi in Niger. While more than 35,000 refugees have crossed the border from Nigeria to Niger, causes behind the escalation remain largely unknown. The humanitarian community has been called to act and address the mounting needs of the displaced populations. A briefing paper published by REACH provides an overview to the situation in the region.
