There is no shortage of written materials about the nature and prevalence of poverty in Nigeria, but they are not all easily accessible by civil-society groups. Measuring Poverty in Nigeria was commissioned by Oxfam GB to support the development of its new programme of poverty-alleviation work in a society that is rich in human and natural resources, and yet suffers major social and economic problems. The report summarises recent evidence from a wide range of sources, including research institutions, civil-society organisations, bilateral and multilateral institutions, government organisations, and individuals. It collates their findings in one comprehensive document which surveys aspects of poverty in Nigeria from social, political, economic, environmental, and technological perspectives.
