4 NAN also reports that the UNFPA had been developing and implementing programmes to suit the needs, aspirations and development of countries across the globe.

5 The programmes are aligned to national priorities and the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework
(UNSDCF) 2020-2025, contributing to its five strategic areas of Economic Development, Social Development,
Strengthened Institutions; Peace, Security and Justice, and Environment.

In Nigeria, the Fund’s 8th CP which focused on tackling Gender-Based Violence
(GBV), Maternal Mortality, Family Planning, among others, will lapse on Dec. 31, 2022, hence the need for a 9th CP
so as to build on lessons learnt from the current cycle.

The CP will also enable UNFPA to work toward achieving the three transformative goals of zero unmet need for
contraception; zero preventable maternal deaths; and zero GBV and harmful practices by the year 2030.
