FEATURED | Maiduguri: City Scoping Study
Maiduguri is the largest city in northeast Nigeria and the capital of Borno State. Borno State has been severely affected by the Boko Haram insurgency and the resulting insecurity has led to economic stagnation in Maiduguri, with the city bearing the largest burden of support to those displaced by the conflict. A population influx of more than 800,000 internally displaced people (IDPs) at the peak of the crisis exacerbated vulnerabilities that existed in the city previously, including weak capacities of local governments, poor service provision and high youth unemployment. As of November 2020, approximately 300,000 IDPs still reside in Maiduguri.
