CITAD presents Book on Community Resilience to PCNI

The Executive Director of the Centre for Information Technology and Development CITAD Y.Z Ya’u has presented copies of the book Understanding Community Resilience in the Context of Boko Haram Insurgency in Nigeria to the PCNI. The book published by CITAD with the support of the United States Institute for Peace (USIP) is a research finding on fostering resilience among communities impacted by the insurgency as a key security strategy for the nation. Receiving the books, the Vice Chairman of the PCNI, Tijjani Tumsah, congratulated CITAD on the publication and commended the organization for their consistent and timely research themes and reiterated that the PCNI takes cognizance of the findings in its work with stakeholders and communities. The research was conducted in over 16 communities across six states of Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Kano and Jigawa and the objective was to understand what factors make communities more resilient to violent action and atrocities perpetrated by terrorists in the North-east part of the country as well as enhancing communities’ capacity to bounce back from devastation.
