Latest figures analysis

IDMC uses figures reported by the Government of Niger, obtained through surveys conducted by local authorities. This data covers the southeastern region of Diffa, which borders the Lake Chad and has been severely affected by the Boko Haram insurgency. IDMC’s end-of-year estimate includes some reported ‘returnees’ due to contextual analysis and evidence indicating that these people remain in a situation of displacement.
