Mr Karlsen said that the projects were part of EU activities to promote, protect human rights in Nigeria and mitigate the conflict in Niger Delta region by addressing the cause of unrest and violence. “The EU is signing four projects with Civil Society Organisations to provide services in the Niger Delta in water and sanitation management to increase access for the locals. “Another one is launching a support programme for the Albino Foundation which is a wonderful project that we are really following up as a resolution from the EU parliament. “This stressed the importance of EU working with the people with Albinism in Africa to improve their rights and to deepen their opportunity,” he said. He said one of the projects was funded under European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) programme, while the others were funded under component three of the Niger Delta Support Programme (NDSP).According to him, the projects have a total funding of 956,000 euros and to be implemented over a period of five years. He said the overall objective of the EIDHR was to help civil society organisations become an effective force for political reform and defence of human right. “So this is another example of close collaboration of EU with CSOs and authority in Nigeria because we know that the chain is as strong as the weakest link.
