Rehabilitation and construction of new water facilities for communities, in schools and other public will be initiated and gradually accelerated in parallel with the training and institutional building activities which will be provided under the capacity building component of this intervention

Support will also be provided for the existing community sani-centres, managed as business, or to establish new ones, which will link up consumers with the service providers to ensure supply chain of necessary spare parts and materials. Sanitation facilities will be contructed at public scools market places and motor parks.

Objectives

To increase access to safe water supply and sustainable sanitation thereby contributing to the achievement of the national target of 80% by 2015 and 100% by 2020.


Rationale

With 58% of citizens having access to safe water (AfDB, 2011), Nigeria is behind schedule in realising its MDG of 80%, and below the Sub-Saharan average of 66%. Most of the 36 States of Nigeria are not able to provide sustainable water and sanitation services to their rural residents where the majority of its citizens live. The Federal government lacks plans and coordination mechanisms to effectively oversee development of the sector.

The Nigeria RWSS Programme phase 2 is in line with the Bank's Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Initiative (RWSSI), developed to address the challenges of providing basic water supply and sanitation services to the hitherto forgotten population of rural Africa.

The Bank intervention under phase 1 is supporting two states of Yobe and Osun, as and phase 2 will build on the experience gained

The programme will update the National Rural Water Investment Programme developed with assistance of the Bank in 2006 and will integrate green growth and climate change principles in line with the Bank's Ten Year Strategy.
