Nigeria is the British Council’s largest operation in SSA with offices in four cities: Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja and Kano. NSRP is a DFID-funded programme managed by the British Council (who lead a consortium including International Alert and Social Development Direct) that aims to enhance collective efforts to identify and respond effectively to potential sources of violent conflict in Nigeria and reduce the negative impacts of conflict on the most vulnerable among the Nigerian population.
NSRP supports interventions to address conflicts at the national level and in 8 target states, namely Bayelsa, Borno, Delta, Kaduna, Kano, Plateau, Rivers and Yobe. The programme has its headquarters in Abuja and also operates from four regional offices in Jos (Middle Belt), Kano (North West), Maiduguri (North East) and Port Harcourt (Niger Delta). Regional Manager will be based in the North East regional office in Maiduguri and will be required to travel to Abuja and other regional offices occasionally.
The programme’s operations in the North East region are largely concentrated in Borno and Yobe states. These two states are among the worst affected by the insurgency, which has led to the death of over 20,000 persons and displacement of over 2 million people. Although much progress has been recorded in military operations to defeat the insurgents, the environment remains fragile and many displaced persons are still in camps and not returned to deserted communities. Public infrastructure and services are being gradually restored and both governmental and civil society organizations face serious institutional and operational challenges.
