Institutional Support : Centre for Population and Environmental Development (CPED)

Nigeria's Centre for Population and Environmental Development (CPED) is an independent, nonprofit organization formally registered in 1998. Its mandate is to carry out action-based research on poverty reduction and sustainable development in Nigeria in general and in the Niger Delta in particular. Communities in this socially and politically unstable region have a high opinion of CPED. CPED has formulated a 15-year strategic plan within the framework of the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals. Implementation of such a long-term plan has proven difficult, so CPED has been implementing successive three-year plans. This grant from IDRC's Think Tank Initiative (TTI) will allow CEPED to develop a revised strategic plan that will include a resource mobilization plan and a monitoring and evaluation system. The overall objective is to improve CPED's governance structure and management systems thereby strengthening its ability to provide high-quality, policy-relevant research.
