Decades of violent conflict between farmers and pastoralists in Nigeria’s Middle Belt have devastated local communities and drastically reduced security and economic activity in the region. Conflict is rooted in competition over natural resources and land, which has been increasing due to climate change, population growth, and the southward migration of pastoralists due to extremist activity in the North. Farmer and pastoralists communities that traditionally interacted over shared resources are polarized, and clashes between communities have taken on religious and ethnic overtones that deepen divides. The resulting violence and instability occurs in an environment where widespread poverty, poor governance and corruption is already pervasive.

Mercy Corps Nigeria, with support from USAID, is implementing the Engaging Community for Peace in Nigeria (ECPN) program in four states in Nigeria (Adamawa, Borno, Gombe and Yobe). The Engaging Communities for Peace in Nigeria (ECPN) is a four-year USAID-funded program. The key focus areas of the program include: (1) Reducing Farmer-pastoralist violence in the Middle Belt through the provision of relevant skills and support needed to peacefully and collaboratively manage disputes and reduce violence in their communities (2) Incorporating conflict mitigation and Do No Harm (DNH) principles cross-sectorally through USAID’s portfolio; and (3) Building the capacity of influential CSOs in the Northeast to become more effective in addressing divisions within communities, promoting mutual understanding supporting reconciliation processes and responding to conflicts through non-violent means.

Mercy Corps Nigeria seeks to engage a technical consultant/firm to provide performance management systems development, monitoring and evaluation (M&E) support and performance monitoring to selected civil society organizations (CSOs) working in the four program states.

The deadline for the submission of proposal is the 19th February, 2018.
