Community Development

Community Development is a process by which community members play a central and active role in addressing the issues which affect their lives. It is a collective and inclusive process which advances social, political and economic development for communities, while building the capacity of the individuals involved. It is a process that utilizes and builds on local knowledge, networks and institutions. The key element of community development is that it is driven by members of the community, and is inclusive of marginalized groups. While this approach is applicable to the global context, it is particularly important in the context of the Niger Delta because citizens have not been properly consulted in developmental interventions and resource management. NIDPRODEV facilitates community development in the communities of the Niger Delta through capacity and awareness building programmes which center on:

  1. Economic Empowerment Programmes
  2. Capacity Development
  3. Technical and Mentoring Support

Following are some examples of NIDPRODEV projects focusing on Community Development:


  • ON Livelihoods and Governance (ONLAG)
    The ONLAG project is intended to strengthen current livelihoods and identify alternative means of sustainable livelihoods. Included in the project are efforts to strengthen and facilitate the ability of local business to access micro-credit (soft loans) through collaboration with micro-finance banks.
  • Global Memorandum of Understanding (GMOU) Deployment
    The overall objective of the GMOU process is to build the capacity of the local communities to negotiate with the multinational oil companies for development funding, and then manage the process of choosing and implementing the development projects in their communities.


  • Niger Delta Friendship Library
    In partnership with Global Citizen Journey-USA, NIDPRODEV hosted a 40-person citizen diplomat delegation visit to the Niger Delta in 2005. The Niger Delta Friendship Library, located in Oporoza, Delta State, was created as the first library and computer center in the riverine part of the delta. 

  • Sweet Crude Documentary Film
    NIDPRODEV was host and Associate Producer for Sweet Crude, the first full length documentary about the Niger Delta. The film has received many awards since being released in 2009, and has just been signed with a distributor for world-wide distribution.
