    Individual Training Consultant - Energy Efficient Stove

    Project Description

    • The Goal of the program, Addressing Diverse and Acute Primary Threats (ADAPT) to Human Security in North Eastern Nigeria, is to save lives and prevent human suffering among displaced, returnee and host households in Borno State.
    • The Goal aligns with BHA’s overarching mission statement to “save lives, alleviate human suffering, and reduce the physical, social, and economic impact of rapid and slow-onset disasters”.
    • The scope of the program is also in alignment with the three strategic objectives of the 2019 - 2021 Humanitarian Response strategy for Nigeria, which are:
      • Save lives by providing timely and integrated multi-sector assistance and protection interventions to the most vulnerable.
      • Enhanced timely, unhindered, and equitable access to multi-sector assistance and protection interventions through principled humanitarian action.
      • Strengthen the resilience of the affected population, promote early recovery and voluntary and safe durable solutions to displacement and support social cohesion.
    • Under the ADAPT Shelter program, Mercy Corps will propose a range of shelter solutions to meet the various needs of newly displaced at reception centers and/or at transition sites, existing IDPs in over-congested camps and the IDPs living with host communities, returnees and host families. Across four intervention types, 2650 HHs in total will benefit. 1000 women headed HHs will receive locally made fuel efficient stoves and 2,400 of the most vulnerable households receiving food vouchers to also receive fuel efficient cook stoves.
    • In Borno, 70% of IDPs, returnees and hosts are reducing meals as a coping mechanism due to insufficient access to fuel sources owing to rampant natural resource overexploitation as seen in REACH MSNA 2020 results. 83% in Dikwa and 67% reduce their meal frequency. 47% have insufficient access to firewood/fuel in the surrounding environment to meet energy needs, 70% use firewood as the most commonly used fuel type for cooking, and from this caseload 12% collect firewood from the bush that can expose them to an insecure environment in garrison towns.
    • To overcome this cross-cutting protection, food-security and nutrition problem, Mercy Corps will distribute 3,400 locally made energy efficient fuel stoves to female-headed households to help the specific need related to fuel that put the women at HH at potential protection risk while going out to bush for fetching the firewood in garrison towns.
    • Mercy Corps will build the response on the EU funded MAIDA program where Mercy Corps partners with a local organization ICEEC who has established local producers in Maiduguri. A training component will be part of the assistance to sensitize the communities on building safe kitchens and fire safety in the settlements.
