UNDP and Channels Television agree on a strategic partnership will promote public engagement and inform development strategies
Development dialogue series for Nigeria launched as an initiative geared towards inclusive public engagement
This report has established-without equivocation, that the humanitarian crisis in the North East region is far from over. More importantly, it is a humanitarian crisis that is complex, multi-faceted and indeed monumental. Not only has more than two million people been displaced and tens of thousands killed in the last decade alone, but the sheer destruction of the basic economic and social infrastructure will take a long time to rebuild. The impact of the insurgency on all the basic Human Development indices is colossal. As detailed out in chapter three of the report, the experience of people, especially those in IDP camps and the measures of well-being, as captured in the various reports and community surveys; education, health, the environment, gender, water, hygiene and sanitation – among others, have all worsened.
