DDG have delivered emergency mine/ERW risk education, particularly focused on IDPs in highly affected areas. This work began in October 2015 and now covers, high-risk areas in Adamawa state, Borno state and are hoping to expand this into Yobe in late 2016.
Other efforts DDG hope to achieve in Nigeria include: carrying out IED risk assessments, develop risk education materials and strategies aimed at IDPs as well as humanitarian workers.
