CHALLENGES AND COPING STRATEGY ADOPTED BY THE SECRETARIAT Funding: The fact that the Management Committee of the PSD Forum has not been constituted & inaugurated, and given the mandate to source funds for the Secretariat, means that NDDC continues to carry the role of funding the Secretariat Delays in the inauguration of the PSD Forum Management Committee: Only Abia, Edo and Rivers States and the Coalition of Niger Delta NGOs, have as yet forwarded the names of their nominees to the Management Committee to the Secretariat. The Secretariat is currently handicapped without this Committee in place. We present these challenges in the hope that they would be appreciated and addressed in this meeting.
