The Managing Conflict in Nigeria (MCN) programme commissioned this paper on implications of the pandemic on conflict dynamics, gender roles and relations, and social inclusion in North East Nigeria to enable better adaptation and response. MCN's overall objective is to enhance state and community level conflict management capability to prevent escalation of conflict into violence in selected locations in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states. While acknowledging that Covid-19 has significant impact on other north eastern states, this paper focuses on Adamawa, Borno and Yobe.
