Access Incident Tracking, Nigeria, July 2019

The Access Incident Tracking Matrix is a consolidation of access incidents affecting the movement of humanitarian cargo in northeast Nigeria. The Matrix has been designed and maintained by the Logistics Sector given its direct civil-military coordination and access function, including the facilitation of movement notifications of cargo and associated escorts on behalf of the humanitarian community. Additionally, the Sector’s effective working relations and liaison with the Nigerian Armed Forces (NAF) has enabled the Sector to provide immediate advice and support to its partners, particularly when faced with access challenges in the field.
