The Market Development in the Niger Delta II (MADE II) project continues working in the Niger Delta states to promote inclusive, pro-poor growth for farmers and entrepreneurs. MADE II builds on the achievements of MADE I (2013-2018),

Working with the the Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND), MADE II is applying its market systems approach in conflict-affected areas of the Niger Delta. It has done so by improving the capacity to provide aspirational economic opportunities and increased incomes for returnees, potential victims of human trafficking and vulnerable households to reduce the temptation to emigrate and likely become victims of human trafficking.

The review concludes that MADE was successful because they applied the MSD approach to the conflict-affected and challenging context of the Niger Delta. They internalised the approach, innovated on it, and operationalised it in their given context.

Intervention description

This case profiles the achievements and associated learning related to the MADE programme. Independently researched in 2019, the review explores the relationship and the synergies that both MADE and PIND created. It does not cover a component aimed at tackling the root causes of human trafficking and irregular migration.

Evidence methodology

The review draws on data from the MADE programme, annual reviews and a DFID independent evaluation. Therefore, it is assumed that its conclusions are credible and based on robust research methods.

This programme's results measurement system passed an audit against the DCED standard.
