Boko Haram insurgency has caused years of displacement, infrastructure destruction, and insecurity in Northeast Nigeria. The Nigerian military and other armed actors, with support from the U.S. government, have been at the forefront of the response in addressing humanitarian concerns.

Explore steps that the US and international community can take to support existing responses and meet emerging gaps.
