Overview :Nigeria faces multiple crises, with a protracted conflict in its North East region, which has spread to neighboring countries and intercommunal clashes in other regions of the country. The effects of the conflict in the North East, together with climate change and desertification has made grazing of livestock difficult and has driven herders to migrate south. This has given rise to the prevalence of violent clashes, most notably in the Middle Belt region. With these crises, Nigeria today is amongst the countries with the highest overall projected conflict risk index and increased risk in socio-economic vulnerability, inequality, and food insecurity. In the Middle Belt, the farmer-herder conflict has become increasingly devastating and progressively violent, especially in Benue, Nasarawa and Taraba States. Over four years from 2016 to 2019, a total of 602 violent conflict incidents have been recorded in the three states with 2,789 fatalities and unquantified destruction of property contributing to the growing insecurity.

Through these collaborations, UNDP has demonstrated the effectiveness of its integrated support to conflict affected communities. With the effects of the pandemic becoming increasingly visible, it becomes more pertinent to accelerate the delivery of effective integrated socio-economic support. Conflict, particularly in northern Nigeria, is fast becoming the predominant destabilizing factor and obstacle to development. Conflict and insecurity have the potential to undermine development efforts undo any gains made by the country. As grievances among citizens increase, conflicts become more complex and demand for context-specific responses increases, – there is need to re-think both the strateg
