  • Since May 2013, the Boko Haram insurgency in Northern Nigeria has destroyed infrastructure, provoked dramatic livelihoods erosion and triggered the displacement of over 2 million people, out of which 1.4 million people are in Borno State. The humanitarian situation of internally displaced persons (IDPs) is critical. Following years of conflict, the majority of the state’s rural areas are empty. Much of the population has fled to the relative safety of Maiduguri, capital of Borno State, or other Local Government Area (LGA) capitals. In the IDP camps of Maiduguri and other enclaved LGA capitals, large portions of the population are extremely vulnerable and in need of immediate humanitarian support. While some areas have recently experienced returns in proximity of main roads, the population from many LGAs is likely to remain displaced for the medium term, lacking security, shelter and livelihoods in their villages of origin. When returns are made possible, it will be essential to support returnees in rebuilding their homes, which are in many cases completely destroyed, and resuming their productive lives and livelihoods.

    IMPACT Initiatives, with operational support from its global partner ACTED, and in consortium with Girl Effect and Ground Truth Solutions will be conducting Third Party Monitoring of the DFID funded North East Nigeria Transition to Development (NENTAD) programme to bring an objective / external verification of delivery as well as ensuring optimal monitoring, verification, accountability and analysis of good practices are drawn for this UK multi year’s humanitarian programme.
