The population of Cameroon has been suffering for years from the protracted crisis of the Lake Chad basin linked to the operations of Boko Haram. The effects of the crisis are added to a chronic vulnerability already high especially as regards food security and malnutrition. Since 2015, the continuous flow of parts of the displaced population within the country and of refugees has generated a sharp increase in humanitarian needs both for the displaced communities and for the host communities that already showed high levels of vulnerability before the crisis. The actors operating in the area estimate 2.6 million people (half of whom are women and 60% less) in urgent need of assistance with respect to the most basic needs. Cameroon the second country, after Nigeria, to be affected by the conflict and violence of the clashes linked to Boko Haram both for the number of displaced individuals and for registered accidents. The attacks, the attacks and the military clashes have very serious repercussions on the population, forcing them to abandon their homes in a massive way and exposing them to serious violations of human rights. Clearly, the part of the already most vulnerable population pays the highest price of the crisis in which the country pays particular attention to women and children who find themselves exposed to various risks, including: family separation, forced recruitment in the armed forces or in groups armed, arbitrary detention and sexual and economic exploitation.
The Far North Region does not have sufficient functioning social services, which complicates the task of the authorities, responding quickly to emergencies and coping with a new challenge generated by the conflict. The lack of basic infrastructure does not facilitate a worthy and safe return of the internally displaced people in the area. Some individuals make commuting movements in the return areas but the conditions of life and safety do not allow them to return permanently. Officials such as teachers, doctors and nurses have left the area and some have never returned.
Furthermore, the services available to women and children are mainly concentrated in urban areas and do not sufficiently reach the decentralized level due to the limited number of social workers; this is accompanied by a lack of materials and tools to provide services and monitor and refer to other sectors. The psychological stress caused on the one hand by instability, lack of security and displacement, by the destruction of houses and by the strong military presence in the area that makes the cohabitation between the military and civilian population very difficult due to abuses of authorities and exploitation of civilians by the army. On the other hand, this state of psychological stress also due to the almost total deterioration of the population's livelihoods,
