At the Frontier 100 Forum, Adrienne Gifford, Senior Advisor of the Initiative for Global Development and Dr. Dara Akala, Program Director of the Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta, presented an overview of a yearlong organizational assessment of the Niger Delta Partnership Initiative (NDPI) and Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND).
NDPI/ PIND is an initiative established by Chevron Corporation, an IGD Frontier Leader company. The Foundations are developing innovative solutions to economic and social challenges in the Niger Delta. Their partner-centric approach uses regional knowledge to understand the root causes of economic instability and aims to forge community-owned, market-driven results.
IGD’s Advisory team engaged in a yearlong comprehensive organizational assessment of NDPI and PIND activities, which included an evaluation of the operational model of the organizations and its effects on impact and systemic change in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria.
The comprehensive report, which will be released mid-June, will feature findings on the impact and potential of the NDPI-PIND model; multiplier effects; opportunities to further enhance impact and stakeholder engagement; and recommendations for capacity-building around impact measurement.
