Abstract

Crisis which usually results to poverty has been recorded to affect women more than other groups. The poverty level in crisis zone is exacerbated by the high cost of living in 111ost of their rural anJ urban areas where women dwell. However, women play significant role in the economic development of their nation, the incidence of poverty especially in the crisis region has constrained them to live below the standard of living. This has adversely affected their businesses and hence their contributions to the economic development of the country. Based on this, the researcher decided to carry out this study to examine how empowerment programmes can serve as an alternative mechanism in resolving crisis situation in places li ke Niger Delta in Nigeria. The study is theoretically based and the findings revealed that the involvement of women in decision making process can act as an alternative mechanism for crisis resolution. Among other things, provision of micro finance, training and development programmes, formula tion of polices that will enhance women's participation in political, social and economic decision making process were recommended as the best way for empowering women in crisis regions like Niger Delta in Nigeria.
