Since 2009, Nigeria has been the scene of attacks by Boko Haram against the population. In particular, the north-east of the country is affected by destruction and displacement. More than 20,000 people have been killed and about 2.2 million people are displaced from their communities.
The project “Support to the internally displaced and resilience of host communities in the north and north-east of Nigeria” will be financed by the BMZ and the EU. It is in the context of Germany's commitment to "fight causes for displacement – stabilize host communities - support refugees". The project is in line with the EU action plan against refugee crises and with the national indicative programme of the 11th European Development Fund.
The project’s purpose is to improve the living conditions of internally displaced persons (IDP), the population in host communities and of IDPs returning to their communities of origin in north-eastern Nigeria.
The project focuses geographically on the federal states of Adamawa and Borno in north-eastern Nigeria where an estimated number of 5 million people is in need of support. With its measures of rehabilitation and development the project is complementary to humanitarian assistance which is provided by other actors. The planned interventions are closely coordinated and harmonized with other donors and stakeholders.
The project will be active predominantly in informal IDP camps and host communities and communities of origin of IDPs. It promotes the linkage of rehabilitation and development. The aims of the project are to stabilize living conditions in the IDP population and population of host communities, allow the resumption of social and economic life of IDPs while they return to their communities of origin as well as the rehabilitation and reconstruction of these communities. Access to formal and non-formal education, to health services, to energy, water and sanitation, the rehabilitation of road and other built infrastructure, the recapitalization of destroyed agricultural production materials, social transfers (cash transfers) and the revival of local economy are examples for areas of intervention. For the rehabilitation and reconstruction in communities of origin, the project will apply a community based and participative approach to draft community development plans. For its implementation the project will collaborate with consultants as well as consortia of international and national non-governmental organizations.
