Tackling the Niger Delta Challenge

Through funding received from the Commonwealth Innovative Initiative award, Development Partnership International is planning to organise a one day Niger Delta Youth Development Round Table. The objective of the dialogue is to:
• examine the development situation of the Niger Delta region, in relation to other regions of Nigeria;
• review ongoing development processes initiated at various levels of governance, and reflect on their relevance to provide long term solutions to the development challenges of the region;
• discuss the status of young people in the Niger Delta and the impact of the development challenges on their lives and livelihoods;
• make recommendations and proffer solutions to the development challenges of the region, particularly as they relate to youth development.

In preparation for the dialogue, DPI seeks to engage students and young researchers with interest in the development of the Niger Delta in examining the issues of sustainable youth development in the Niger Delta region and Nigeria by extension. This is therefore to call for papers and articles on the subject of youth and the development of the Niger Delta region. The papers may address: infrastructural development, information and communication technology, HIV/AIDS and health service delivery, employment, peace building or agricultural development. These must be however linked to youth development.

- Youth and students between the ages of 15 and 30 are particularly encouraged to submit papers or articles;
- All papers or articles must be typed, double space, 12 point times new roman and must be at least 10 pages in length but not exceed 15 pages including references;
- Authors of 15 outstanding papers will be invited to attend the youth dialogue on the Niger Delta challenge to be hosted in one of the states of the Niger Delta;
- After a thorough review process, 6-10 good quality papers will be published in a final report titled: Youth Development and the Niger Delta challenge;
- The author of the best paper will receive a cash prize to be determined at a later date and will be personally honoured at the dialogue.
- All papers must be received by February 10, 2009. Papers should be sent by email to: dpi@developmentpartnership.org.

All queries should be addressed to Adebayo Samuel adebayo@developmentpartnership.org. or Chibuzo Nwachukwu chibuzo@developmentpartnership.org
