Cordaid has been active in Nigeria since 2004 with a variety of programmes. Since January 2013, Cordaid's activities in Nigeria focus exclusively on extractives with a strong focus on civil society capacity- building via technical advice, accompaniment, lobby & advocacy, linking & learning as well as strategic financing. We work with a broad range of local partner organisations primarily in the Niger Delta states, supported by a team of advisors, finance and project officers, and a regional (Africa) extractives programme manager. To better support this programme and capitalize on funding opportunities, Cordaid established a (project) office in Port Harcourt in December 2013 and is now exploring the establishment of a new liaison/country office in Abuja. To head the new Abuja office and oversee the office in Port Harcourt, Cordaid is currently seeking a country representative.
