Title: Expression of Interest (EOI) - Consultant to Carryout Risk Mitigation Plan for an Early Warning and Early Response (EWER) Project in Four States in Northern, Nigeria
The CLEEN Foundation in partnership with the University of Los Angeles, California, and the University of Toronto, Canada is implementing a Village Monitoring System Project on early warning and early response in four volatile states (Kaduna, Plateau, Taraba, and Zamfara) and sixteen communities in Northern, Nigeria.
The project seeks to prevent and mitigate violence against civilians in at-risk areas of northern Nigeria by strengthening and expanding EWER capabilities including through access to near real-time alerts of village burning incidents. The project is designed to contribute to the mitigation and to bring to an end the frequent conflicts, disappearances and mass violence that is persistent in Northern Nigeria. This incidences are being driven by the effects of climate change; ethnic, religious and cultural tensions; weak response by security agencies.
Collectively, in a bid to protect themselves, communities have resorted to self-help; self protection and the involvement of women and empowerment of community members to serve as peace-builders. This project engages civil society to serve as peacebuilders/conflict mitigators trained in early detection, warning,and response to violence. Central to the project is the mobilization and training of local Nigerian constituencies, with an emphasis on women, to engage in and strengthen existing EWER systems from the ground up. In the implementation of this project, it is envisaged that there might be some challenges that could hinder the successful execution of the project as conceptualized. To this effect,
