Mercy Corps has been present in Nigeria since 2012, focusing its interventions on adolescent girls’ empowerment, economic development and conflict mitigation. With the insurgency spilling over from the Northeast of Nigeria and causing displacement of millions of individuals, Mercy Corps started its humanitarian response in 2014 to address the rising humanitarian needs. Now with peace gradually returning to Benue, Ebonyi, Niger, and Kebbi States and The FCT, the moment is right to build on the significant humanitarian investments and move towards an integrated market systems development approach that will drive inclusive economic recovery and ensure peace gains are maintained and improved upon.
Mercy Corps is implementing a five-year United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Feed the Future Nigeria Rural Resilience Activity (RRA) in Northeast Nigeria. RRA aims to sustainably move people out of chronic vulnerability and poverty. Feed the Future Nigeria Rural Resilience Activity will enable individuals and communities to engage in strong and sustainable market systems rather than continuing to rely on humanitarian assistance and faltering with each new shock. To achieve this purpose, the Activity will have four components and four cross cutting elements.
Conducting constant research and analysis to understand the dynamics created because of our interventions shape our programming and assists Mercy Corps to make evidence-based decisions. Making course corrections is at the core of our programmatic approach to improve an adaptive learning process.
