purpose of the five-year (2020-2025) “State Accountability,
Transparency and Effectiveness” (“State2State”) Activity is
to increase the accountability, transparency and effectiveness of
selected state and local governments (LGAs) in Nigeria. This will
be achieved by: strengthening governance systems (with a focus on
public financial management [PFM] and procurement, as well as
monitoring and evaluation) related to the delivery of services in
key sectors (basic education, primary health care, and water,
sanitation and hygiene [WASH]); increasing government
responsiveness to citizen needs and priorities; and improving
government and civil society capacity to manage conflict (through
work on prevention, mitigation and reconciliation with the same
sectoral partners, not stand-alone assistance to the police or
judiciary). State2State will achieve this purpose by facilitating
the strengthening of subnational governance systems in a
sustainable manner, supporting the efforts of local reformers and
building on locally derived solutions including, to the extent
possible, reforms already working in other parts of Nigeria.
