Nearly 1 Million People Face Food Crisis in Far North Region as Elephants Devastate Crops

Paru le mercredi, 24 janvier 2024 12:55

Nearly one million people in the  Far North region, specifically in the Mayo-Kani department, are grappling with severe food shortages, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). The crisis has been largely attributed to crop destruction by elephants, which has resulted in significant agricultural losses across more than 30 hectares of land.

The devastation has left many families unable to replenish their food stores, exacerbating the hunger gap in Mayo-Kani. In response, humanitarian partners are offering cash and livelihood support to those affected, OCHA Cameroon reports.

However, the food insecurity issue extends beyond Mayo-Kani. Across Cameroon, an estimated 2.9 million people are facing similar challenges. Factors contributing to this widespread crisis include incursions by the terrorist group Boko Haram, recurring conflicts over natural resources, and flooding, in addition to the elephant-induced crop destruction in Mayo-Kani.
