Organization Profile: UNDP has been in Nigeria since the country became independent in 1960. In the last programme cycle (2003-2008), UNDP provided capacity building and policy development support to the Federal Government and 21 states drawn from the six geo-political zones in four programme areas: Governance & Human Rights; Poverty Reduction; HIV & AIDS; and Energy & Environment.
he Democratic Governance for Development (DGD) project supports Nigeria’s democratic process within the framework of Electoral Cycle Support and Deepening Democracy over the period, 2009-2015. The overall goal of DGD is to help develop the capacity of national and sub-national institutions, networks and processes, whether governmental or non-governmental, as a contribution to the further entrenchment of electoral democracy and democratic governance in Nigeria. The project provided technical assistance to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) among other critical stakeholders towards the 2011 general elections to deliver free, fair and credible elections.
Following the improvement in the 2011 elections, partnership between DGD and INEC is being strengthened to further position it to improve on subsequent elections. While developing the post-election phase of its support to INEC in this regard, DGD is supporting INEC to produce a permanent voters card and register; identify specific issues to be addressed in the reform of the constitutional and legal framework of elections, the development of a strategic plan and organizational restructuring based on the report and recommendations of the Registration and Election Review Committee. To facilitate this, DGD is supporting INEC and the office of the Chairman to recruit a Chief Technical Advisor.
