Since 2015, the Emergency Relief Coordinator has released more than US$80 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) for life-saving assistance in response to Boko Haram-related violence. Some $27.2 million was allocated in March 2015 to responses in Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria to assist more than 1.6 million internally displaced people, refugees, returnees and host communities; $31 million was provided in late 2015 and early 2016 for live-saving humanitarian response for more than 700,000 affected people in the Lake Chad Basin region; and $23 million was allocated in June to assist 250,000 newly accessible people in Chad and north eastern Nigeria.
