Our work in the Niger delta
We work with and support many local partner organisations and communities on the issues that affect them. Issues such as oil spill compensation claims, inter-communal conflicts, local energy needs, the struggle against slum clearance, monitoring elections, dealing with corruption and striving for environmental and social justice. Some of our recent projects are highlighted here. More can be found at the Spotlight Issues section.
