The proposed operation involves an additional loan of UA 3.99 million to finance the activities of the Nigeria Inclusive Basic Service Delivery and Livelihood Empowerment Integrated Programme (IBSDLEIP). The programme seeks to curb fragility aggravated by the Boko Haram insurgency. This Program is part of ongoing Federal Government efforts toward North East States Emergency Transition, Recovery and Peacebuilding, elaborated by the five-year programmatic “Buhari Plan” of 2016. The Buhari Plan, is a Strategic and Peace Building programme to reverse the devastating conditions created by the seven-year destruction of the Boko Haram insurgency. This additional loan reinforces program components at the Federal Level and will contribute to addressing gaps in government’s financial commitment to operationalizing the Plan. This complement of financial resources is specific to bringing improvement to the school infrastructure and improve the quality of services in science and technical education. Indeed, it will finance the completion of educational and hostel buildings, provide a water and sanitation system, along with providing capacity building and a Business Development Centre (BDC) and other additional facilities at the Federal Science and Technical College (FSTC), in Lassa, Borno State. The additional activities to be funded will be undertaken within the original IBSDLEIP timeframe; and will provide a conducive learning and teaching environment to ensure the reinstatement of the pre-closure capacity of the FSTC, which at the time of closure had a total of 950 students and 80 technical subject tutors, and increase its capacity. This will assist the Government to improve access to quality Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) especially in North East Nigeria and contribute towards poverty reduction, and rebuilding of North East Nigeria.
The development goal of the proposed Bank Programme is to contribute to reduced poverty and vulnerability in Nigeria in the context of the Northeast emergency transition, recovery and peacebuilding framework. The specific objective is to improve the quality of life by increasing access of the poor and vulnerable to basic social services in water, sanitation, hygiene, health and education; livelihood opportunities; food security and strengthened safety net systems in affected states in the Northeast. The Program will give particular attention to the youth, women and IDPs. Psychosocial support, peace-building, environment, climate change and gender equality interventions are mainstreamed in all components of the Program.
The target population to benefit directly from the Program will be mainly the most vulnerable segment of the population including youth and women with emphasis on rural poor in LGAs affected by the insurgency and IDPs reintegrating into communities. The Program will help address the needs of an estimated 14 million affected people, including over 2.3 million Internally Displaced Persons (of which 53 percent are women, and 57 percent are children). Over 9,000 IDPs and head of vulnerable households will receive direct assistance for their economic reintegration and livelihoods; 2032 SSMEs (79% women) will be reached to develop and enhance their businesses; 2,900 construction artisans and mechanics working in the informal sector will be supported to enhance quality and productivity and 2,000 unskilled youth will be trained in economic skills for employment and job creation.
