The conflict that continues to affect North-East Nigeria has caused the displacement of almost

1.9 million individuals throughout the country, most of whom have sought refuge in host communities and Internally Displaced Person (IDP) camps and camp-like settings in the states of Borno, Adamawa (IOM DTM Report, round 23, June 2019). Despite the fact that some IDPs have started to return to their villages of origin after relative security has been restored and more areas are now accessible to humanitarian actors, living conditions for conflict-affected populations remain dire, particularly for vulnerable individuals such as women and children who are at high risk of abuse from insurgents, security agents and other members of the community.

One third of the female displaced population in North East Nigeria has suffered some form of sexual violence, whereas a fifth manifested having been victims of physical violence . Even though the majority of incidents of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and trafficking in persons (TIP) remain unreported and victims often do not seek help due to fear of retaliation by the culprit or stigmatization by their community, perpetrators have been widely identified as being Boko Haram insurgents, members of the police and armed forces, and in some cases intimate partners or members of host communities or camps. And as cases of GBV and TIP continue to be a common occurrence in IDP camps and host communities, there is an increasingly urgent need to roll out interventions aimed at protecting vulnerable individuals. Therefore, the proposed project seeks to contribute to the improvement of living conditions and protection of IDPs and affected populations in Nigeria’s North East states.

Provision of training on responding to SGBV- police officers

The government of Nigeria is looking at further deployment of police officers into IDP sites. As police officers are deployed, and more particularly female officers, there is an opportunity to ensure that they are equipped to handle reports and respond safely and ethically to such cases. Police officers have reported receiving complaints of sexual exploitation and abuse and were unsure on how to proceed with such reports. The training module, developed based on the initial findings and mapping, will include components on key SGBV concepts, equipping the participants with knowledge on survivor centered support and encourage implementation of such approach as much as possible within existing constraints, and understanding the judiciary and legal framework in order to provide direct response to SGBV and TIP survivors and other affected population. Officers in SGBV response which will also encourage a sustainable approach beyond the term of the project. This component seeks to reinforce the capacity of the NPF to act against acts of SGBV, whether the perpetrator is a member of its forces, or not. The participation of female police officers aims to encourage trust amongst survivors to report cases, increasing accountability for SGBV while also deterring potential aggressors. The training

should be led by the police officers that were trained initially by IOM. However, IOM will continue to lend support by assisting the newly trained officers while delivering on the job mentoring. This will provide immediate feedback, ensure that the materials are used and conveyed appropriately and to model facilitation skills. Ideally the trainers chosen to participate would be the identified by SGBV focal point and already existing trainers. The proposed activities will ensure that law enforcement are integrated into the development of a community-based complaint mechanism and SGBV and TIP referral systems. Therefore, this component of the project will entail the strengthening of the response provided by the NPF and NSCDC to incidents of SGBV and TIP.
