Only a few years ago, Diffa was mainly known as a trade region. Since February 2015 however, the deadly Boko Haram incursions have drastically changed the lives of local residents, more than 280,000 people have been displaced.

The strict curfew, closing of markets and the suspension of trade has led to an economic downturn, resulting in a humanitarian crisis.

According to the United Nations, the people of Diffa are arguably the poorest on earth, living in the least developed region in the least developed country of the world.
