Number of local safety / security issues resolved by Community Peace and Safety Partnerships (up to 30 November 2022)


Funded by the European Union, the Managing Conflict in Nigeria (MCN) Programme supported Nigerians with conflict resolution, at both the state and community level. We worked mainly in northeastern Nigeria: Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states.

We focused on these areas:

  • conflict management, reconciliation and stability in communities
  • the role of women and youth in peace-building
  • supporting women and girls affected by violence
  • the reintegration of young people and women involved in armed conflict
  • research to support policy makers and practitioners.
