Governance and Peace Building
Partnering with the people and government of Nigeria, UNDP’s support takes a holistic approach strategically linking governance, conflict prevention and peace building to address development deficits resulting from marginalization, mismanagement of public resources, social exclusion and weak sense of national identity.
UNDP support to the people and government of Nigeria is aimed at ensuring that the country enjoys a just, democratic, stable society, with accountable governance and increased transparency, through trusted, regulated, participatory electoral processes and high institutional performance, governed by the Rule of Law.more
