PAK was set up to support capacity building, economic growth and reform in the non-oil producing sector in Nigeria. As a £20 million DFID programme for five years (2005-2010), PAK has provided support in research, analysis, dialogue and advocacy on evidence-based policy.
GRID worked with HTSPE (UK), GHK International Ltd (UK), Statistical Services Centre, Reading University (UK), Development Resources Initiative (Kaduna, Nigeria) and Agenda Consulting Nigeria Ltd (Lagos, Nigeria) in implementing this programme.
GRID served largely as a funding intermediary throughout the course of the programme, ensuring the required funding was delivered to beneficiaries in a transparent and accountable manner.
After five years, this governance programme is now being replaced by the new DFID - funded programme: Policy Development Facility (PDF).
