    In 2014, a report identified long-term strategic priorities for EU’s cooperation with CSOs in Nigeria. It also proposed more appropriated modalities of working and funding, and a more comprehensive approach. The European union’s objective was to enhance its engagement with civil society because it has a role of critical and growing importance in its external relations in Nigeria and beyond. Based on this report, the EU has been setting up a project to strengthen the role of civil society as independent development actors in their own right and as drivers of more effective, accountable, transparent governance at all levels.

    The global objective of this contract was to assist the National Authorizing Officer and the EU Delegation in the identification of a civil support program under the 11th EDF National Indicative Program for Nigeria. The support aimed to define an appropriate basis for the formulation and design of the program, in accordance with the 11th EDF National Indicative Program for Nigeria 2014-2020.
