More than 300,000 Nigerians affected by the insurgency in the North-East are set to benefit from a 11 million Euros (N3.8 bn) Oxfam intervention fund to aid food production in impacted communities.

This was revealed by Oxfam Head of Programmes in Nigeria, Constant Tchona, at a ceremony organized in Makurdi by Oxfam in conjunction with Nigerian Association of Women in Agriculture, NAWIA, and Benue State government.

Tchona, at the ceremony themed: ‘2016 Female Food Hero, Ogbonge Woman Awards’ added that 50 percent of the beneficiaries would be women and the intervention, which would be implemented for four years under the Pro-Resilience Action, PROACT, programme of Oxfam, was being co-funded by the European Union and would be executed in Adamawa and Kebbi states.

“PROACT is intended to improve adaptation to climate change, combat desertification, promote nutrition-sensitive agriculture and policies and encourage sustainable and resilient small scale agricultural practices

“The project will also build the food security, nutrition, and resilience of over 35,000 vulnerable households in the disaster and conflict-affected communities to enhance resilience to food shocks in the post-food crisis period,” he said.
