|Overview : |
In response to the escalation of conflict between farmers and herdsmen in the Middle Belt region of Nigeria, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Women (UN Woman), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and office OF the United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) are launching a project, “Integrated Approach to Building Peace in Nigeria’s Farmer-Herder Crisis”, with support from the UN’s Peacebuilding Support Office (PBSO).
The project aims to support Benue, Nasarawa and Taraba states in addressing the farmer-herder crisis through enhancing their preventive capacities by promoting dialogue and proactive engagement; building mutually beneficial economic relationships between farmers and herders; improving the effectiveness of the security response through strengthened human rights monitoring and accountability; and providing an impartial and evidence-based narrative to defuse the politicized debate and help mobilize a broader response. This is one of two projects that UN Nigeria is launching to address the Middle Belt crisis and aims to both help shape a new approach to the crisis as well as to operationalize conflict prevention in the local context.
In order to better understand the peacebuilding impact that the integrated approach is able to achieve, funding has been set aside for a Community Monitoring Mechanism. This mechanism aims to measure the level of peace in the target communities under the project, to inform a project baseline assessment. Upon conclusion of the project, a similar impact assessment is foreseen to help triangulate peacebuilding impact in the targeted communities.
To support this effort, UNDP is seeking to procure services from a reputable and distinguished Civil Society Organization/INGO/NGO with a strong track record in monitoring and evaluating peacebuilding impact. The selected vendor will design a framework which includes validated criteria and methodology for its assessments and conducts assessments of perceptions of peace in the targeted communities through a combination of consultations, interviews, surveys/questionnaires and dialogues. The aim of the assessments is to ensure that the project tracks progress towards delivering peace dividends, and to assess the impact of the project in contributing to peace in the communities, including successes and challenges.
