Rivers State Investment Plan
NNF worked with officials of Rivers state government, commissioners, local NGOs and relevant international development agencies to identify series of distinct projects and investment opportunities. These projects were outlined in sufficient detail to provide both cost estimates and preliminary feasibility analysis to an audience of interested donors and private sector investors. This package was developed as a series of specific investment activities that were mutually developed between NNF/CI and Rivers state. The basis of this strategy was the partnership between Rivers state, the federal government, donor agencies, the Nigerian private sector, and most importantly, the citizens and local organisations of Rivers state.
