Oxfam, CEPAD, CRUDAN and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH with funding from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) GiZ are implementing an eight (8) months project aimed at improving social cohesion through participatory and inclusive community development planning.
Since its inception, the project implementation strategy adopted localised comprehensive integrative approaches. The approaches are community town hall meetings, community dialogue meetings, workshops, training, and other relevant approaches. This was done to improve social cohesion and bring all members of target communities on the path of sustainable development with the citizens being in the driver’s seat leveraging relevant government and non-governmental structures in Michika LGA.
Key achievements of the project since its inception include:

Engagement and Sensitization of over 112 stakeholders on key social cohesion and community development principles. Through these engagements, the capacities of the stakeholders in good and inclusive governance, participatory bottom-up development planning, community development and leadership levels at the LGA. Complementary roles of traditional rulers and local government officials in community development, differences between personal interest and public or common interest, barriers to development and Conflict Resolution at the LGA level amongst other issues of community development were strengthened.

Mobilization, engagement and sensitization of over 1600 community members across 16 wards of Michika on the project goals, inclusive and participatory development planning as well as the role of community members in community development planning and execution of community development initiatives.

Organizing and facilitating Community Development Planning (CDP) Sessions through which 1,287 community stakeholders across the 16 wards of Michika LGA participated in the identification and prioritization of community development challenges.

Compilation of the identified challenges into a single document called the Community Development Plan.

Harmonization, review and validation of development priorities across 10 sectors to form Michika LGA Development Plan.

Training of LGA officials on the translation of CDPs into actionable budgets.

All of these translated into the development of a 5-year Community Development Plan as the major outcome of the activities enumerated above.
Through the participatory and inclusive CDP sessions organized by the project, a total of 94 priority development challenges across 10 sectors (including Agriculture and food security, Physical Infrastructure, Economy and Livelihood, Water and Sanitation, Climate Change and Green Economy, Conflict and Security, Health, Education, Gender and Social Protection Sectors).
