Country Overview

Although Nigeria has the largest national economy in sub-Saharan Africa, it must overcome significant development and governance challenges to fulfill its potential. With an estimated population of 214 million, of which approximately 96 million people live on less than $1.90 per day, Nigeria is home to the world’s largest population living in extreme poverty. USAID works in Nigeria to promote broad, inclusive economic growth, food and nutrition security, a healthier, better educated population, accountable, inclusive, and responsive governance, gender equality, access to renewable energy, and stability, including humanitarian assistance, in areas devastated by extremist violence.
