Nigeria’s Social Protection strategy was developed in 2004, with an objective to reduce poverty and protect vulnerable groups through effective and sustainable risk management mechanism thereby achieving sustainable social protection by the year 2015. This Social protection strategy was developed by the Social Protection Advisory Group (SPAG). In 2007, the MDG-OSSAP office made funds available through the Debt Relief Funds (DRF) to SPAG for the implementation of conditional cash transfers (CCT), this was seen as a social protection instrument to reduce poverty and meet the Millennium Development Goals. In 2009, a Social Security Policy for Inclusiveness, Solidarity and Sustainable Peace and Prosperity was submitted to the National Assembly, it was not passed into law.

TDii was contracted to develop a state engagement strategy aimed at securing increased political and institutional commitment to implement effective state –wide social protection programmes that ensure improved nutrition, food security and poverty reduction for women and children.  This was mainly focused on researching key governance systems Jigawa and Zamfara states including a study of institutions that may likely house social protection in the states and their key budgeting procedures
