There are more than 300,000 internally displaced people in the Far North Region of Cameroon who have been driven from their homes by both terrorist activity and the shrinking of Lake Chad due to climate change.

In early 2021, some 2.7 million people were thought to be food insecure in the country, a situation which the COVID-19 pandemic has aggravated.
