The Première Urgence International commissioned a Social-Economic Study for Livelihood and Economic Recovery Intervention. The Social-Economic Study for Livelihood and Economic Recovery Intervention is an in-depth, independent assessment of people’s livelihoods, resilience of socio-economic systems to specific threats or shocks on livelihoods vulnerability in Maiduguri especially with respect to cultural and ethnical perspectives that undermine economics and the welfare of the population.
The nine years of conflict in Borno state is characterised by destruction of livelihoods and livelihood assets. This has placed both IDPs and host communities in dire need of urgent humanitarian interventions for livelihoods. In this context, Première Urgence International (PUI) is looking to develop and implement sustainable livelihoods programmes for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Maiduguri, Borno State. However, interventions in crisis and post-crisis situations as in Maiduguri can achieve their goals and avoid inadvertently causing more harm only when they are based on solid socio-economic analysis. This is the raison de etre for the Première Urgence International (PUI). The purpose of this social-economic study is to understand key features of household assets, livelihoods strategies, priorities and goals at micro-level, policies, social-cultural and ethnical consequences of the current crisis, barriers to equitable access to resources among others.
