Call for Research on Power Sector Reform in Nigeria
In November 2015, Good Governance Africa-Nigeria initiated its operations in Lagos. The primary objective of Good Governance Africa-Nigeria (GGA-Nigeria) is to contribute to good governance, through research, policy engagement and other such activities that help promote sustainable socio-economic development in Africa’s largest economy and most populous country. GGA-Nigeria’s activities are organized around three core thematic pillars that reflect Nigeria’s most pressing challenges and opportunities including a.) Improving the Business Environment, b.) Extractives, Power & Oil Sector Reform and c.) Enabling Innovation & Sustainability Drivers. In the longer-term, GGA-Nigeria also wants to make its voice heard on the question of Nigeria’s broader leadership role and responsibilities within the ECOWAS (regional economic integration) bloc; regional efforts on promoting integrated natural resource development and efficient use; shared challenges of climate change, security and the (green) energy transition in West Africa; as well as Nigeria and the bloc’s role in addressing global governance of migration, maritime security, riverine basins, and food security, etc.
As part of GGA-Nigeria’s mandate under its Extractives, Power & Oil Sector Reform (EXT-REF) pillar, our organisation seeks to unravel issues that currently constrain the power reform initiatives in Nigeria. To offer thought leadership and stimulate innovative thinking on the power sector, GGA-Nigeria seeks eligible consultant(s) to identify steps to be bring all of the on-going initiatives by government and the private sector to effective implementation with the aim of supporting rapid and sustained improvement of the power situation in Nigeria.
