Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.

We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected.

Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.

We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.

We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 85 years, and are now active in more than 80 countries.

The project will focus on making communities more resilient to floods by supporting systems strengthening and providing relevant technical reinforcement to emergency management structures that need to be strengthened at the community level linked to LGA and the state levels up to the national level, ensuring coordination and purposeful collaboration among the agencies.

The project is developed in line with our ambition to scale up our humanitarian-development-peace (HDP) nexus in Nigeria by promoting strong coordination across humanitarian and development programming and influencing.
