The UNDP in Nigeria is set to launch the Livelihoods and Economic Recovery Assessment Report for North-East Nigeria in partnership with Oxfam Nigeria.

The objective of the assessment was to gain systematic and representative information of the socio-economic situation of the local population, returnees and IDPs settled with host communities and to present a comparative analysis between the affected populations in Adamawa, Borno, Gombe and Yobe states.

The findings of the assessment conducted by Oxfam Nigeria on behalf of UNDP, revealed the complexities that have necessitated the need for interventions that address Livelihoods and Economic Recovery (LER) that are properly synergised with the on-going humanitarian actions in the North East.

In this vein, it is hoped that all who wish to take action as a result of this assessment would aim at contributing to building the resilience of affected people and communities to overcome the negative consequences of the crisis and maintain a decent standard of living.
