Protracted regionalized armed conflict since 2009 has left 7.1 million people in need of humanitarian assistance in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states in North-East Nigeria. The crisis is inherently a protection crisis; in the past 10 years, 27,000 people have been killed and thousands of women and girls abducted by Boko Haram and related groups such as the Islamic State in West Africa. 

This case study reviews the current context of funding for Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women and Girls in Nigeria, including the levels of funding requested, funding received, and the consequences of the funding gap. The analysis is unique because it not only distinguishes between the amount of funding requested and the amount of funding received to ascertain the funding gap, but it also audits and recodes project gender markers to specifically determine the amount of tailored and targeted funding that is actually available for women and girls.
