Project Description

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive growth sustainably to improve the quality of life for everyone. On the ground over 170 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.

UNDP’s communication efforts in Nigeria are aimed at strengthening the position of UNDP as a thought leader in development and a partner of choice for the Government of Nigeria. This is done through the development and implementation of communication strategies with core messages and clear constituencies at home and abroad.

The Communication and Partnership Unit is responsible for enhancing UNDP Nigeria’s image through engagement with both local, regional and international media. The Unit serves as the main interface to work with the media to promote UN messaging on the organisation’s priorities, position UN and UNDP leadership, highlight programme results, donor contributions as well as the many strategic partnerships throughout its work.
