Budget: US$5,405,253 (UNTFHS: $1,996,109; Pooled Funding: $3,409,144)
Implementing Agencies: UNDP, UNICEF, FAO
Through an integrated human security approach, the programme strengthened collaboration between a broad range of stakeholders to build the resilience of communities, de-escalate the crisis in the Far North, and stem the spread of violent extremism in the region. Through initiatives that helped mitigate farmer-pastoralist conflicts, provided alternatives to youth vulnerable to recruitment by extremist groups, and improved municipal capacities to deliver social services and manage disaster risk, the programme responded to the root causes of economic, environmental, health, community and personal insecurity in the region, with a focus on the most vulnerable women, youth and displaced populations.
