Linking relief, rehabilitation and development and promoting the stability and safety of communities in displacement in northeastern Nigeria

Funded by the European Union Emergency Trust Fund for Africa and implemented by the Norwegian Refugee Council, the Danish Refugee Council and the International Rescue Committee, the project targets displaced populations in states of Adamawa, Borno and Gombe in northeastern Nigeria. The programme will help improve access to basic services for vulnerable people affected by displacements, boost socio-economic recovery and ensure sustainable livelihoods for displaced persons, host communities and returnees, focusing in particular on the needs of young people to reduce the risks of crime and radicalisation. The programme will also prioritise vulnerable women-headed households. All data will be disaggregated by sex. The programme contributes to wider EU efforts to build resilience, counter violent extremism and promote stability in northeastern Nigeria.
