Nigeria and seven other countries are expected to benefit from $5.2 million contribution from the Government of Japan to support projects implemented by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) in the selected countries.Specifically, other beneficiaries include Ethiopia, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Liberia, Somalia and the Syrian Arab Republic.

According to UNIDO, by supporting the self-help capacities for reconstruction of livelihoods of communities, whilst focusing on individual people and the respect for their identities, the projects will benefit women, youth, refugees and internally-displaced persons, who suffer from inequality, marginalization and exclusion.

In Nigeria, building on a previous project funded by the Government of Japan, the project aims to further improve senior secondary school education to enable students to start and manage micro and small businesses.
