How can you make a difference?

Nigeria Country Office is one of the largest operations of UNICEF and the largest in West and Central African Region. The country programming is complex as it has development programming, with major disparities between the North and the South, North being relatively deprived and poor, while majority of the population is concentrated in the North. The country is further challenged with ethnic and religious divides coupled with governance issues particularly financial management.

While the Country Programme is geared towards achieving the nexus between humanitarian and development programming, due to the enormous multidimensional and complex socio-economic, extremism and political challenges the management and oversight of the delivery of the programmes often permeates into managing two parallel programming to respond to the humanitarian crisis in the North East spreading into North Central and North West and regular programming in the rest of the country.

The annual throughput (planned amount) of the country programme is around US$442 M. The Country Office manages funds (taking allotment of 2020 as a baseline) from four sources RR: US$57.7M, ORR: US$219.8M and ORE: US$66.6M and IB budget US$0.6M.
