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.
MADE applies a market systems approach to increase the incomes of at least 306,000 poor men and women in selected non-oil sectors (namely palm oil, poultry, fisheries, cassava, and agricultural inputs) through: i) improved access to inputs, products, services and technologies; ii) changed behaviour of stakeholders in the way they perceive and work with the poor; and iii) new economic opportunities for potential victims of trafficking.
