Economic Development for Peace and Stability in Plateau State, Nigeria

Funding: European Union
Programme Area: Plateau State, Nigeria
Programme Duration: August 2013 – January 2015

The project ‘Economic Development for Peace and Stability in Plateau State’ is closely linked to and implemented together with the GIZ-SEDIN Programme which has been operating in Plateau since April 2011 and a predecessor programme since 2009, both promoting micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs). Both are implemented jointly by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. Due to this linkage, it is possible to have synergy and leverage effects of implemented activities.

The project is funded through the ‘Instrument for Stability (IfS)’ fund by the European Union. Furthermore the project collaborates with two NGOs, Apurimac and Search for Common Ground, which are implementing the other two IfS-funded projects in Plateau State.
