    Consultant, Kano CIP for FP2020

     

    Project Overview and Role

    Palladium is recruiting for a consultant to support the development of state-level Costed Implementation Plans for FP2020 in Kano State Nigeria.

    Palladium is supporting governments to attain the ambitious commitments they made at the London Summit through strengthening national and decentralized capacity to develop country-owned, broad-based, national FP costed implementation plans (CIPs) aligned to FP2020 pledges.

A CIP details the program activities necessary to meet national goals and the costs associated with the activities, providing clear program-level information on the resources it needs to raise domestically and from partners. A CIP is critical to give direction to a national or state family planning program.
