The transitional development assistance (TDA) project financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) "Strengthening capacities for conflict resolution in Central Nigeria" aims to establish the conditions for a de-
escalation of the violent conflicts in Plateau State and one other state in Central Nigeria (Middle Belt).
Violent conflicts over access to land between (semi-)nomadic herders and sedentary agrarian communities have escalated in recent years, threatening the country’s security and stability.
The project focuses on the de-escalation and prevention of a further violent escalation of the conflict with activities in 3 areas.
To this end, strategies and plans for fair access to land will be developed, conflict resolution mechanisms established and the productivity of agricultural land use increased.
The project has a duration of 4 years(until 10 / 2023).
