Premiere Urgence Internationale Field Coordinator Jobs in Nigeria

  • Africa (between 178 and 200 million inhabitants), Nigeria is ranked as one of the strongest economy of the continent relying on oil and petroleum products as well as mineral resources (gold, iron, diamonds, copper etc…). Despite a strong economy, Nigeria suffers from important development disparities between North and South provinces of the country, social and economic inequalities, and from a high rate of corruption at every level of the economic and administrative systems. Moreover, Nigeria is a very diverse country, hosting multiple ethnic groups and religion.

  • The on-going conflict in the North-East States of the country (states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe) and widespread violence triggered a large scale humanitarian crisis. This context is exacerbated by the extreme violence from armed-opposition groups ISWAP (Islamic State’s West Africa Province) and JAS (Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati wal-Jihad) targeting civilian populations in NE Nigeria. In December 2019, there were 2 019 000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the country according to the UNHCR and 7.9 million people were considered to be in a humanitarian emergency situation. Three years of conflict have seriously deteriorated living conditions in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States and have depressed agricultural production, exacerbating populations’ critical needs for life-saving assistance.
