WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

The world faces increasing challenges every day. People are continually being exposed to violence, disaster, loss of, or separation from, family members and friends, deterioration in living conditions, inability to provide for one’s self and family, and lack of access to basic services. As a matter of fact, armed conflicts and sustained insurgency in Nigeria especially in the North-Eastern geo-political region have resulted into grave consequences on livelihood.

Despite impressive humanitarian assistance in traditional relief aid such as shelter, food distribution and basic health care, the effects of conflicts and natural disasters on the welfare and development of the affected people remains highly significant. Thus, the design and implementation of various projects to combat this unsavoury development.

The management functions involved in a project typically include scope, quality, time, cost, risk, procurement of human and material resources, and communications management. Each function represents a separate discipline calling for special qualifications and body of knowledge. The intricacies involved in managing projects generally are known to many project managers, other practitioners and stakeholders; however, the requirement for each function depends on the size as well as the nature of the project in question. Yet, in managing projects in conflict regions many project management practitioners today espouse some traditional approaches of project management which might not be tenable in conflict regions and which could be recipe for failure and frustration. For this reason, when managing projects in conflict regions great emphasis must be placed on the project team’s approach and techniques which must be backed by broad based specialized considerations.

Thus, it is highly imperative that projects team and other stakeholders managing projects in conflict regions are equipped with the requisite insights, skills, techniques and competencies for coping with the evolving dynamics of project management and the peculiar characteristics of beneficiaries in fragile and conflict-affected regions.
