About the Project
Search for Common Ground (Search) with funding from UNICEF is implementing a 2month analysis on the impact of conflict on women and children in North-West Nigeria. Search will be carrying out an in-depth examination of the impact of conflict on women and children in the three most conflict-affected states of Zamfara, Katsina, and Sokoto in northwest Nigeria. Search will deploy a combination of extensive desk review and exploratory research conducted using quantitative and qualitative methodology. This approach will adopt a review of secondary data covering the context before and after the rise in violence in Zamfara, Katsina, and Sokoto Stales. Search will also deploy direct assessment to obtain primary data using mixed methodology (qualitative and quantitative methods) through structured questionnaires and surveys.
