To strengthen coordination and sharing of information, across sectors and geographical regions, UNDP hopes to offer a national platform for conceivable ideas that are inclusive and dynamic; making interventions more people-centered and impactful.

The investment by UNDP towards the 2019 cohort, in excess of US$3.7 million, is made up of contributions from the regional office and selected UNDP country offices across the continent, including Nigeria.
The visits conducted in Logo, Guma, Kwande, Buruku and Agatu Local Government Areas were useful in gaining insights in the local conflict dynamics.
