As part of its emergency response in Diffa, Oxfam in Niger undertook a modified EMMA (Emergency Market Mapping Analysis) in November 2016. The broad aim was to understand the effect of the Boko Haram conflict and the military operations to counter them on the critical livelihood activities of conflict-affected people. The market mapping included an analysis of protection risks. This allowed an analysis of how the destruction of markets and livelihoods in the crisis and has left men, women, girls and boys facing new or increased protection threats. The report contains key recommendations for the government, the UN, donors and humanitarian agencies on programme options for supporting markets and livelihoods and protecting conflict-affected people in Diffa.

This paper provides a non-technical outline of the issues facing conflict-affected people in Diffa and presents recommendations for the UN, donors, the Government of Niger and humanitarian agencies on how to support them.
