Nigeria Facility for Inclusive Markets (NFIM)
The GIM Initiative is working with UNDP Nigeria to set up a Nigeria Facility or Inclusive Markets (NFIM) with the overall objective to enhance a sustained flow of information to the Government of Nigeria at the federal and state levels about how to co-create inclusive markets, and therefore expand choices and opportunities for the poor.
The Facility will do so through: i) Advocacy and Alliances; ii) Capacity Building; iii) Knowledge Management; and iv) Research.
The FIM will have an initial emphasis on agriculture, where the bulk of inclusive markets experience currently lies in Nigeria. It will start working in three specific value chains to contextualize and make its knowledge meaningful for stakeholders (including organized private sector and private investment community, among others).
