Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P) is an initiative of the Federal Government of Nigeria to mitigate the impact of partial removal of fuel subsidy on vulnerable populations in Nigeria. Sure-P is re-investing the “savings” accrued from fuel subsidy reduction into programmes that provide social safety- nets, build critical infrastructures, to improve the lives of Nigerians.

The Sure-P National Programmes and Projects are categorized basically into two:

The Social Safety -Nets Programmes, namely;
  • Community Service, Women and Youth Empowerment

  • Vocational Training; and
  • Mass Transit
  • Culture and tourism
  • Monitoring and Evaluation

Infrastructural Development Projects; namely:

  • Roads and Brid9es Programme
  • Niger-Delta Projects
  • Railways

In view of the above programmes, it is of critical importance to demonstrate results and outcomes of interventions through high quality and evidence-based program data that will go a long way in informing better planning as well generating optimum buy-in and confidence of stakeholders across levels.

The end product of this implementation is expected to be deployed across all the projects funded by SURE-P.
