Nigeria braces itself to be part of what is likely to be a third wave of the COVID-19 outbreak, where the coronavirus will interact with low healthcare infrastructure and many pre-existing fragilities. It will require a whole society approach to limit the spread of COVID-19 and to cushion the potentially devastating impact it may have on vulnerable people and economies.
With a total sum of N 885.5 million (equivalent to US $2.3 million), the project implemented under the Nigeria One UN COVID-19 Response, seeks to alleviate the socio-economic impact of the pandemic on the beneficiaries and strengthen resilience of communities
The EU and United Nations received delivery of vital supplies to help the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in Nigeria. The shipment, along with others coming soon, are procured through the One UN COVID-19 Basket Fund with a significant contribution from the EU - and will be valued at more than USD 22 million.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in partnership with Kano State Government and the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs (FMHDS) have launched an unconditional cash transfer project largely funded by the Government of Japan and the European Union (EU).
The project will focus on enhancing the capacity of CSRS/NDC to sponsor peace support operations courses on protection of civilians, gender in peace support operations and logistics support in peace support operations as well as, boost its contribution of qualified troops to regional and global peace missions.
The Government of Japan has partnered with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Nigeria with a contribution of $3,394,286
The second consignment, which is part of the US$ 22 million procurement of essential medical supplies for the COVID-19 response, approved by the EU and endorsed by the Nigeria/One-UN COVID-19 Basket Fund Board arrived at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja on Sunday, 26 July 2020
