The Democratic Governance for Development (DGD) project is managed by UNDP Nigeria in support of elections and more broadly, the deepening of democracy in Nigeria. It is funded with contributions from The European Union, the UK Department for International Development (DfID), UNDP, the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). The project provides technical and financial support to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as a means of strengthening INEC as an accountable and responsive institution, and consolidating Democratic Governance in line with international best practices. Following the recently concluded elections in Anambra State of Nigeria and as preparations begin in earnest towards the Governorship elections in Ekiti and Osun States as well as the general elections fixed for February 2015, there is a need to support the capacity of INEC in the area of logistics planning.
