The Democratic Governance for Development (DGD) project is managed by UNDP in support of elections and more broadly, the deepening of democracy in Nigeria. It is funded with contributions from The European Union, the UK Department for International Development (DfID), UNDP, the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). The project duration is 2010-2015. It aims to consolidate and advance democratic governance and accountability in Nigeria to achieve the country’s stated development priorities and outcomes as specified in the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) and the Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP).
These objectives are pursued through four components:
Among the institutions being supported, is the Independent National Electoral Commission of Nigeria (INEC) and State Independent Electoral Commissions (SIECs). Support to INEC will contribute to strengthening its strategic planning and operational capacities; ensuring credible systems for voter registration, results tallying and submission; improving the legal and policy framework for elections and supporting capacity building of staff. SIECs are responsible for organizing and overseeing elections for State Houses of Assembly and the Local Government. While there have been significant improvements in the management of elections at the Federal level by INEC, numerous challenges persist at State and Local Government. SIECs face the challenge of capacity, independence and credibility with voters. DGD II’s support will focus on building the capacity and skills of SIEC staff to enable them to organize transparent and fair elections.
As part of these efforts to build capacity for effective management of elections in Nigeria at Federal and State levels, DGD II will continue using the BRIDGE curriculum among other approaches. In the first and transitional phases of the project, several BRIDGE workshops were conducted for INEC staff. Two Train the Facilitator Workshops were conducted. Modular workshops were held on gender and elections, strategic planning and election observation. Participants were senior INEC Directors, training department staff, the Gender and Civil Society desk and other departments of INEC.
Duties and Responsibilities
The project therefore seeks the services of several BRIDGE Facilitators to conduct modular as well as Train the Facilitator Workshops. DGD is committed to building the national capacity for the training of election professionals. Therefore the project will partner previously trained semi-accredited facilitators with more qualified BRIDGE facilitators to help them improve their skills in delivering the curriculum.
We require Expert, Accrediting and Workshop facilitators to conduct workshops for INEC and SIEC staff between August 2012 and August 2013. The key objectives of this consultancy are:
