Technical assistance for the coordination of EU-funded interventions in Borno State (2018-2021)
The overarching objective of the programme is to contribute to resilient and sustainable peace in the State of Borno, in line with the Nigerian government’s strategy as laid out in the Buhari Plan of June 2016.
This programme foresees the recruitment of a Technical Assistance Team to improve the coordination of EU-funded actions in Borno State and enhance the capacity of the Triple R Ministry of Borno State in its day-to-day activities and in its relations with the development/humanitarian community in the State. Specific attention will be placed on the transition from short-term relief aid to long term development.
Generally speaking, this TAT will aim to: a) act as a facilitator with major stakeholders such as the EU Delegation in Abuja and ongoing EU-funded programmes in the State, and b) reinforce the capacity of the Triple R Ministry. This TAT will further develop ties with ongoing EU programmes, especially the 9 EU-funded resilience programmes launched in January 2018. Other relevant interventions by development partners will also come into consideration.
The TAT will work in close coordination with the Programme Steering Committee, which will oversee strategic matters, and the Technical Implementation Committee which will focus on coordination and technical issues.
