West and Central Africa’s Consolidated Emergency Report
How UNICEF delivered for children in emergencies in 2018
In 2018, the UNICEF Regional Office for West and Central Africa (WCARO) provided support and oversight for preparedness and response across major emergencies including Nigeria (Level 3 since 2016) and DRC (Level 3 since 2017). Neighbouring countries in the Lake Chad Basin - Cameroon, Chad and Niger maintained L2 status up until the end of June 2018. The ongoing crisis in the Central African Republic (Level 2) remains a corporate priority. In December 2018 the Cameroon North-West SouthWest crisis was declared a Level 2 emergency.
