iMMAP is a pioneering organization that is leading the way forward in the effective use of information management practices and principles in the service of humanitarian relief and development.
The conflict between Boko Haram and Nigerian government has led to a humanitarian and security crisis, which has spilled over to neighbouring countries such as Niger, Cameroon and Chad. An international coordinated military operation against the insurgent group has seen a massive population displacement and the worsening of the humanitarian situation. Recent military gains by the Nigerian armed forces resulted in the liberation of big swats of the north-east of the country, which were a stronghold of Boko Haram. The humanitarian community is still assessing the scale of the needs in those areas and the United Nations, along with several national and international NGOs, is leading the response efforts to the millions in needs.
