Context

Cameroon continues to face three complex humanitarian crises with challenges to assist the affected population. The socio-political crisis in the Northwest and Southwest regions of Cameroon, mutated into an armed conflict at the end of 2017. This armed conflict in the NWSW caused over 680,000 IDPs in addition to some 204,000 returnees and 52,000 refugees in Nigeria. 52% of the IDPs are women and children at risks of sexual violence, sexual slavery, trafficking, forced marriage and an increase in prostitution for survival and security. Findings of various assessments indicated that most of the humanitarian needs have a direct impact on women and girls’ protection against GBV. Reports received from GBV Sub Cluster members revealed 1,065 GBV incidents reported in 2019 out of which 31% are cases of sexual violence affecting mostly women and girls. The conflict is characterized by violations of international humanitarian law with civilians, particularly women and children most vulnerable, as 89% of GBV survivors reported were women and girls. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the protection concerns for the most vulnerable, including women and girls, who may lose easy access to support services but also to economic opportunities for their resilience due to the restriction on movements and other preventive measures, and face a potential increase in GBV incidents, particularly domestic violence, due to increased stress and reduced livelihood opportunities.
