Cameroon is affected by three, concurrent, complex humanitarian situations: Boko Haram violence in the Far North region; the influx of refugees from the Central African Republic into the eastern regions (Adamawa, North and East); violence in the North West and South West regions with spillover effects in the West and Littoral regions. Humanitarian needs are compounded by structural development deficits and chronic vulnerabilities that further challenge the long-term recovery of affected people.

The Child Protection national platform together with the CP AoRs activated at regional level (one in the Far North, and the other on the South-West/North-West conflict) ensure that the efforts of national and international humanitarian actors to protect children are well coordinated, achieving maximum quality and impact.
