Emergency WASH assistance for conflict affected populations of Borno and Yobe state, Northeast Nigeria


Project and Study Summary

  • Project Name: Emergency WASH assistance for conflict affected populations of Borno/Yobe states, Gubio & Mobbar
  • Sector: WASH
  • Implementing Partners: Global level: Global Affairs Canada, Nigeria: Action Against Hunger

Project Background

Rationale for the Project

Northern Nigeria has experienced eight years of violent conflict, which has resulted in deepening of the humanitarian crisis. In addition to the 14 million people in need of humanitarian assistance of which more than 50 percent are children, there are large numbers of unaccompanied and separated children among the IDPs exposed to an environment of sexual and gender-based violence (GBV). Families and communities have shifted and many unconventional households now exist which are headed by women, children or older people. Borno State has 4.4 million people in urgent need of humanitarian assistance according to HNO 2017 and also has one of the largest number of returnees of 511,591 people. In Borno, the majority of returnees have returned home in search of better livelihood opportunities and the state has the highest number of IDP 78% (1,373,564) out of 92% of total IDPs (IOM DTM XVIII, August 2017). In Borno, 54% of IDPs live in host communities while 46% live in camps. Food continues to be the main unmet need in IDP settlements and it has steadily been on the increase, now reaching 72% as of August 2017. The other main unmet needs are shelter (8%) and NFIs (12%) (August 2017). For the returnees in Borno State, the shelters of 76% (55,831) have not been damaged, whereas 20% (23,355) are returning to partially damaged shelters, and 4% (4,992) are living in makeshift shelter.

Geographical scope covered by the analysis

The project will carry out PHAST/CHAST TRAINING in Borno/Yobe states, Gubio & Mobbar


Purpose for the study

Basically to build staff’s strength and capacity in enhancing proper project implementation.

The PHAST methodology will be focused in adults and CHAST methodology will be targeted to the children with support of WASH COMs. The WASH COMS members will be involved in conducting session and follow up.  PHAST empowers the communities to improve their water, sanitation and hygiene situation through participatory activities and to carry out their own plans to improve their situation.  CLTS and PHAST together result in more positive change than CLTS alone, as witnessed across various global programs implemented by Action Against Hunger. PHAST offers an opportunity of improving latrine facilities thus moving up the sanitation ladder, improving hygiene practices and gives a range of technical options to suit the context. This brings in ownership and empowers communities to continuously improve their environmental living conditions. As such, a PHAST ToT will be conducted and cascaded down to the community. To improve the hygiene practices in schools, Action Against Hunger together with WASH COM will form school hygiene clubs with a combination of teachers and pupils. This club will be trained on CHAST methodology to cascade the session to the children. At the end of all sessions, a School action plan will be developed and followed by WASH COMs.

Objectives of the training

Increased sustainable use of gender sensitive WASH services and on time emergency response for conflict affected populations in Northeast Nigeria, especially women and girls.
