This project goal is being achieved through two specific objectives and corresponding outcomes

Objective 1

  • Strengthen linkages between citizens and local authorities in the Niger Delta to respond to drivers of violence in the region.

    Expected Outcomes

  • People of the Niger Delta, including militants and ex-militants, feel that cooperation between them and local authorities is strengthened;

  • Platforms for collaborative response to underlying conflict issues by communities, government, and security are established in project LGAs

    Objective 2

  • Increase in public awareness and support for peace in the Niger Delta

    Purpose of the Final Evaluation

  • Building understanding and trust is the most critical precondition to peace building. With the growing population and resultant lack of control of resources such as land and crude oil proceeds, communities in the Niger Delta are prone to conflicts over these resources.

  • In the absence of understanding and trust, intra and inter-communal clashes are rife and further clashes with the Oil Producing Companies are also common.

  • This project recognizes that if members of communities are empowered with non-violence means of resolving conflicts and embrace dialogues, and thus develop locally-owned and sustained mechanisms for conflict prevention and dispute resolution, the risk of intergroup violence will be reduced and norms and institutions favourable towards peace and reconciliation will be reinforced.

  • To determine the project’s contribution and impact in achievement minimizing conflicts arising from governance and resource issues

  • To provide an overview of the strengths, weaknesses, challenges and gaps in the project implementation, and recommendations for addressing the weaknesses and challenges which will inform future programming.

  • To provide and share actionable lessons learned and recommendations for the design and implementation of future projects.

  • How relevant were the project strategies, activities and partnerships to the specific context and objectives of the project?

  • How relevant were the project strategies, activities and partnerships to the result of the project?
