Mission and Objectives:

  • UNDP is the United Nations’ largest agency with a mandate to eradicate poverty, through sustainable and inclusive human development. UNDP has been in Nigeria since the country became independent in 1960 providing capacity building and policy development support to the Federal Government of Nigeria in the areas of Governance & Peace Building, Inclusive Growth, and Sustainable Development.
  • UNDP continues to support the government in the implementation of development interventions aimed at meeting medium to long-term goals enshrined in National and Subnational development plans as well as the Sustainable Development Goals.
  • The goal of UNDP is to improve the lives of the people of Nigeria, especially the poorest and most vulnerable, and to ensure a future that offers equality, dignity, and opportunity for all. UNDP works in partnership with the Federal Government of Nigeria, development partners, UN agencies, civil society and local communities to help identify local solutions to meet global and national development challenges through a range of interventions that combine UNDP’s expertise and comparative advantage in the areas of Governance & Peace Building, Inclusive Growth and Sustainable Development.

  • The insurgency-driven conflict in the Lake Chad Basin, including Northeast Nigeria, has been longstanding and has caused undesirable consequences in terms of loss of lives, created multi-tiered intergenerational grievances, destroyed socio-cultural and socio-economic systems, and remains a threat to the immediate, medium and long-term transformation of the affected territories in Nigeria, including Borno, Adamawa and the Yobe States. Borno has seen a significantly higher impact and the insurgency there has gone through a variety of phases and is marked by cycles that are connected with several factors.
  • By 2021 and into 2022, the insurgency in Northeast Nigeria had taken an unprecedented turn leading to a large number of individuals exiting the conflict and presenting themselves to security authorities, largely in Borno State, but also in neighbouring countries.
  • Moreover, sustaining this momentum of exits presents challenges to the effective process of their handling and treatment of the individuals as led by government authorities and in ensuring their reintegration into communities amidst an ongoing conflict, an internal displacement situation and significant intergenerational grievances stemming from the longstanding conflict.
  • As a response to the mass exits, in November 2021, the State Government of Borno passed a “Policy on Community-Based Reconciliation and Reintegration” premised on the Vision for the long-term transformation of the State to contribute to peace and stability. Additionally, the Borno State Government has developed and is implementing the ‘Borno Model’.
  • This is a state-led programme for integrated management of those that have exited the insurgency and includes key community-level interventions aligned with the CBRR approach on a community-oriented reintegration process while at the same time incorporating targeted reconciliation, healing and long-term transformation perspectives. It is also aligned with the regional priorities under the Regional Stabilization Strategy for the Lake Chad Basin.
  • UNDP is supporting the Federal and State governments to make operational these approaches as aligned with the implementation of the Regional Stabilisation Facility – Nigeria window, which is operating in some of the locations that have been identified for reintegration. This at the same time supports alignment with the national/international principles and UNDP policy orientations for effective implementation of community-based reconciliation and reintegration.
  • Given this context, UNDP seeks to engage (3) Community Mobilization Officers to work with UNDP and the Borno State Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development in data collection, consolidation, monitoring, follow-up, community mobilization, and any other tasks assigned that are aligned to the implementation of core components of the Borno State Policy on Community Based Reconciliation and Reintegration.
