The Policy Development Facility (PDF) is a DFID-funded programme that fund projects which help Nigerian partners formulate evidence-based policies to support inclusive economic growth and help strengthen the Nigerian Government's organisational ability to put those policies into effect.
It tries to strengthen Government and non-government partners' capacity through their participation in evidence-based policy analysis and processes.
Some technical assistance specifically for organisational development of non-government partners are also funded by the facility.
It operates primarily at the federal level, but interventions at state level are funded where they contribute to federal policy processes.
GRID is serving largely as a funding intermediary throughout the course of the programme, ensuring the required funding is delivered to beneficiaries in a transparent and accountable manner.
