The study ‘Diversification and Non-Oil Export Opportunities for Nigeria States Post-COVID-19’ was commissioned by the NEPC through the Policy Development Facility (PDF) Bridge Programme for use by public and private sector stakeholders. Ernst & Young conducted a market analysis on six prioritised products from the Zero Oil Initiative and provided strategic recommendations. PDF Bridge has now developed a policy brief for stakeholders to highlight the key issues and recommendations. The full study can be accessed here.

ANALYSIS AND IMPACT OF THE EXPORT EXPANSION GRANT ON EXPORT POTENTIAL, MARKET ACCESS AND EXPORT COMPETITIVENESS IN NIGERIA
Continuous and consistent implementation of the Export Expansion Grant (EEG) has been identified as crucial to the diversification agenda of the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN). Despite its importance, however, the programme has experienced various implementation challenges and, at least, three suspensions since inception. The aim of this study is to provide evidence-based information on EEG implementation to guide relevant stakeholders to reform and reposition the scheme for greater effectiveness. The study aims to specifically analyse the impact of the grant on the beneficiaries prior to suspension in 2013 and the post-suspension implementation from 2017. It also investigates the challenges faced by beneficiaries in their attempts to access the grant. The study applied both primary through survey and secondary data through desk review to address the set objectives of the study. The survey was conducted through three methods: (i) administration of questionnaires, (ii) Key informant interviews (KII), and (iii) focused group discussions (FGD).
REFORM OPTIONS FOR REDUCING THE TIME, COST, AND NUMBER OF PROCEDURES FOR TRADING ACROSS BORDERS IN NIGERIA
The lack of improvement and deterioration in Nigeria’s export trade performance rankings such as measures of time and cost associated with exporting and importing a standardized cargo of goods reinforces the need for Nigeria to undertake urgent and extensive reform to improve its trading across borders performance. This research provides immediate, medium and long term reform options.
This is the report from a feasibility study conducted on the possibility of constructing a border post and associated infrastructure at Saki West, Oyo State. Conducted in 2012 and funded by FCDO Nigeria Policy Development Facility (FCDO-PDF).
This report presents a market analysis of the 22 identified products of the Zero-oil initiative providing a comprehensive analysis on the export potentials, key markets, existing value chain, and quality requirements of six (6) key products namely; Soya, sugar, rubber, leather, cocoa beans, and ginder.
