Start date: December 2020 – August 6, 2025
The purpose of the five-year (2020-2025) “State Accountability, Transparency and Effectiveness” (“State2State”) Activity is to increase the accountability, transparency and effectiveness of selected states and local governments (LGAs) in Nigeria. This will be achieved by: strengthening governance systems (with a focus on public financial management [PFM] and procurement, as well as monitoring and evaluation) related to the delivery of services in key sectors (basic education, primary health care, and water, sanitation and hygiene [WASH]); increasing government responsiveness to citizen needs and priorities; and improving government and civil society capacity to manage conflict (through work on prevention, mitigation and reconciliation with the same sectoral partners, not stand-alone assistance to the police or judiciary). State2State will achieve this purpose by facilitating the strengthening of subnational governance systems in a sustainable manner, supporting the efforts of local reformers and building on locally-derived solutions including, to the extent possible, reforms already working in other parts of Nigeria.
The Capacity Building Advisor will support capacity building and engagement activities in selected states. S/he will address gaps in capacity through range of technical assistance, mentoring and peer learning, ensuring sustainable capacity for implementing reforms.
The Capacity Building Advisor works as a member of the project’s core advisory team and will collaborate closely with other senior advisors in conflict, gender and social inclusion, public
financial management, and civic engagement. The Capacity Building advisor works to ensure best practices and best fit solutions are leveraged between states.
Reporting: The Capacity Building Advisor will report to the Technical Director.
