The Lake Chad Basin Crisis remains one of the largest humanitarian emergencies in the world, continuing to affect millions of people in the Lake Chad Basin region. The difficulties in the current rainy season, combined with the continuous deterioration of the security conditions are impeding the delivery of humanitarian assistance as some areas are inaccessible.

Persistent rainfalls are causing flooding, and Plan teams are conducting rapid need assessments as well as developing contingency plans in localities where populations are at risk of being affected.
