The Cameroonian Minister of Territorial Administration launched the 2022 Humanitarian Response Plan today April 15 in Yaoundé. The ceremony was attended by development partners, including Matthias Z. Naab, United Nations Resident Coordinator in Cameroon and coordinator of the humanitarian response plan.
According to available information, the plan will require an investment of CFA226 billion to help about 4 million people. Matthias Z. Naab said the vulnerable people to be assisted are those suffering from the crises in the Lake Chad Basin and the Northwest and Southwest regions. These crises are accentuated by the presence of Central African and Nigerian refugees fleeing instability in their countries.
As a reminder, the 2021 humanitarian response plan was estimated at CFA200 billion. With 51% of the funds mobilized, the response coordinator reveals that humanitarian assistance has been provided to nearly 2 million people.
