About the Curve Awards

The Curve Awards bring together practitioners, academics, donors and government leaders from Nigeria and beyond to celebrate the very best use of learning and continuous improvement in the development sector. The Awards are an opportunity for organizations to showcase their use of responsive feedback in Nigeria, and to share learnings and case studies with others working in the development sector.
