This will be the final event in the LEAP webinar series sharing lessons from 20 years of UK governance programming in Nigeria. Over this period, the UK government has funded governance reforms with a view to improving the quality of education, and of child and maternal health services.

Comparing experiences across the Northern State of Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano and Yobe, this session will explore whether and how reforms to state-level policy, planning and budgeting, accompanied by greater civil society engagement, have contributed to specific improvements in health and education systems, and as a result, the health and education of the population.

The panel of Nigerian and UK experts will also discuss how State Governments can make use of international assistance more effectively to offer their citizens improved services, and what development partners need to do, to ensure their programmes are coordinated.

This event will take place on Zoom. Please join us on Zoom by following the instructions that you will receive in your confirmation email. A "Join this webinar" button will appear on this page shortly before the webinar, for easier access.
