    Mobilising for Development (M4D) is a six-year DFID Nigeria funded Local Governance programme currently being implemented in 9 focal LGAs across 3 northern Nigeria states of Jigawa, Kaduna and Kano. The programme’s expected outcome is: ‘Policy makers and service providers are more responsive and accountable to citizens' better articulated demands and entitlements, especially adolescent girls (AG) and people with disability (PWD). The programme works on both demand and supply-side governance reform: on the demand-side, it aims to strengthen citizens’ capacity to influence development, while on the supply-side, it aims to support LGAs’ ability to respond to citizens’ demand, whether it is in the form of responding to policy changes or request for improved service delivery.
