Integrated community stabilization in North Eastern Nigeria


The project responds to the immediate need to stabilize communities across Borno, Yobe and Adamawa. This means intervening in a critical number of communities per Local Government Area (LGA) and fostering linkages between them. This approach aims to re-establish the socio-economic fabric of the region. Focusing its impact at the community and LGA level, it will slowly build a resilience network of inter-connected communities.

Project Goal

Overall goal of the project is the stabilization of conflict-affected communities through the provision of integrated support. Moving away from geographically and thematically fragmented interventions, the overarching goal of this resilience-based approach is to stabilize local communities which were devastated by the onslaught of Boko Haram through the provision of support in 4 inter-related areas: livelihoods, security, basic services, and emerging local governance.

Through a range of integrated activities improving human security, reconciliation, violence prevention, enhanced local government’s accountability and citizen engagement in service delivery, as well as increased equity in the provision of basic services and employment opportunities, self-reliance of communities will be strengthened. Overall total beneficiaries: 1,000,000 in 5 LGAs
