Niger Delta Peace and Security Working Group Forum on Stakeholder Responsibilities for the 2015 Election

The Stakeholders’ Forum on 2015 Elections brought together 102 public and private sector stakeholders – including security agents and traditional and youth leaders – to share findings from its multi-sector consultations on what can be done in order to mitigate the potential for violence in the Niger Delta. The Peace and Security Working Group (PSWG) was established in order to enhance the effectiveness and coordination of interventions that are designed to reduce conflict in Nigeria. The PSWG meets in Abuja and Port Harcourt, and brings CSOs, NGOs, government, and private sector stakeholders together to share information and identify opportunities for enhanced collaboration. The Niger Delta Sub-Group was established with the same vision of preventing violent conflict with a specific focus on the 2015 elections and the end of the Amnesty Program.

Appropriate Technology-Enabled Development (ATED) -Chokor Oven

PIND’s Appropriate Technology-Enabled Development (ATED) team went to monitor the construction of chorkor ovens, clean burning stoves that allow fish smokers to produce more smoked fish in less time, in Fishtown in Keffes River Development Community in Bayelsa State. The chorkor oven is an appropriate technology – an AT – because it is made from locally-available materials and can easily be replicated at community level. These pictures show the construction of the chorkor ovens by trained youth from the Keffes RDC. Once operational, these ovens would help improve the productivity of fish smokers and help boost income.
