Although figures are difficult to quantify, OCHA estimate 5.9 million people have been affected by the insurgency in northeast Nigeria and an estimated 350,000 people have been displacedsince May 2013, both within Nigeria and across the borders into Chad, Niger and Cameroon. Most displaced people are living in host communities, although around 5,000 are in camps.

Ministers have committed to continue the roundtable programme in 2014 and several roundtables have already taken place. We have recently launched a Twitter account ‘@DCMS-Women' to provide an additional channel for direct engagement between individual women, the women's sector and policy officials. We also plan to develop the women's engagement website pages on GOV.UK to include more information about the programme and will publish an evaluation of the programme shortly.</p> more like this
