PIND is a Nigerian non-profit Foundation established in 2010 with funding by Chevron Corporation to support a portfolio of socio-economic development programs for Nigeria’s Niger Delta in order to improve standards of living of communities in the region. PIND supports projects in collaboration with a diverse range of donor partners including bilateral and multi-lateral aid agencies, federal and state government agencies in Nigeria, private companies and foundations. With an overarching goal of increasing income and employment in the region, the Foundation has four distinct but interrelated program areas. They are:

  • An economic development program focused on generating opportunities for pro-poor market development and employment generation.
  • A capacity building program that will build the service delivery and engagement capacity of government, civil society and communities.
  • A peace-building program that strengthens conflict resolution mechanisms for enabling integrated peace and economic growth.
  • An analysis & advocacy program that improves analysis and understanding of systemic constraints to growth in the Niger Delta region.

The Integrated Peace and Development Unit (IPDU) is a unit within PIND’s peacebuilding program that provides operational-level support to PIND’s Partners for Peace (P4P) project and other donors and organisations in promoting peace, providing conflict mitigation support, capacity building and other peace building/conflict management support within the Niger Delta region. The IPDU also promotes collaboration and synergy among existing local, regional, and national efforts of actors in both public and private sectors in operationalizing conflict early warning and response mechanisms, with a focus on gender and youth.
