Accessing Assistance Maiduguri Workshop Report

June 2020

Humanitarian Outcomes facilitated a workshop in Maiduguri on February 12th, 2020 drawing on work over the last 5 years exploring access issues in highly insecure places. The workshop explored what is known about this issue in North-east Nigeria, whether there are key gaps in knowledge and what a shift in focus could mean for how agencies approach programming, advocacy and protection strategies. It was attended by 45 staff from international and national aid agencies. What follows is a note offering personal reflections on the discussion and the key issues rather than a conventional report of what was said.
