ECOWAS begins resilience, security assessment in Nigeria

ECOWAS begins resilience, security assessment in Nigeria

The Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, has initiated a resilience and human security assessment across its member states.

The effort aims to gain a comprehensive understanding of security dynamics and trends while identifying and reinforcing resilience structures that support human security in these nations.

The project, co-funded by the European Union and the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), was launched with a technical session held in Abuja on Monday.

 Chris Ngwodo, Director of the Office for Strategic Preparedness and Response in Nigeria, stated that the meeting marked the beginning of the country's resilience and human security assessment for Nigeria.

“It’s a study that is being undertaken across West Africa but Nigeria is the first country to undertake it. It is aimed at mapping human security vulnerability and resilience factors within our country.

“We want to achieve an understanding of the complex issues that underline conflicts and instability within Nigeria, we want to map the resilience factors that can help us to become better in combating those issues, issues that engender conflicts and strive and above all we want to be able to get empirical data that can be used to reform policy interventions by the government,” he said.
