Community-level Activities

The communities of the four different Local Government Areas in Ogoniland have agreed to support UNEP in its mission to the Niger Delta. In return, UNEP has committed to conduct the mission in a manner that maximizes benefits to local communities.

A number of measures have been taken to ensure that local communities are made aware of the project and are consulted, included and informed of progress at every stage of the mission.

In addition, UNEP aims to support Ogoni communities by building local capacity for the longer term, in collaboration with UNDP.
