Strengthening Advocacy for Effective Participation of Vulnerable Groups (IDPs and Women) in Peace Processes in Borno State

 

Strengthening Advocacy for Effective Participation of Vulnerable Groups (IDPs and Women) in Peace Processes in Borno State

Overview:

The Boko haram insurgency and violent extremism in Borno state has also resulted in millions being displaced and living in various IDP camps under appalling conditions in camps and host communities. Over 80% of the IDPs are women and children. It was against the fore-going that GEPaDC had implemented a project titled “Strengthening Capacity of Civil Society Organizations for Effective Interventions in Issues of Peace and Security in Borno State” that led to the publication of the Charter of Needs of Target IDPs Communities (Bama, Chibok, Gwoza and Konduga) in Camps & LGAs in Borno State that created awareness on the conditions in the IDP camps, empowered CSOs advocating and intervening in the area of conflict resolution and peacebuilding and the establishment and empowerment of the community based advocacy groups (CBAGs) engaging government and other key stakeholders with the Charter of Needs and also promoting awareness and preventing VAWGs in their respective communities.
