Pro-Natura International Nigeria works to achieve long-lasting solutions for community development within the Niger Delta. By establishing trusted and transparent Community Foundations, PNI helps communities to lead their own development process. By building institutions, capacity, trust and confidence within the community, PNI is redefining community-led development in the Niger Delta through the Community Development Foundation Initiative.
Pro-Natura International (Nigeria) advocates that in the absence of good governance, an effectively implemented community led development process is the only viable vehicle for sustainable development, conflict resolution and economic improvement for poor and marginalised communities in the Niger Delta and elsewhere. There are no short cuts or simple solutions.
Since 1997, PNI has pioneered and successfully demonstrated participatory development with rural communities; strengthening existing institutions and creating community capacity to assess, plan, manage monitor and evaluate their own developmental needs.
