Resilience in North-East Nigeria

How can we build resilience in places where people need it the most?

Assistance programs at the Humanitarian–Development–Peacebuilding (HDP) nexus hold great promise for effectively protecting and supporting people in crisis settings. Yet, quantitative micro-level evidence from such settings remains scarce, concerning both the behaviors and outcomes of affected individuals and households as well as the effectiveness of support interventions.

This project studies resilience in North-east Nigeria – a humanitarian, development and conflict crisis setting. Specifically, we assess the resilience impacts of climatic and conflict shocks and of a complex agricultural intervention in Borno State.
