Abstract: Water and Sanitation Sector Reform Programme in Nigeria is being implemented in six focal States with major funding from the European Union. The programme covers all three subsectors: urban, small town and rural component. The major focus of the programme is to reform the sector and improve governance which is being achieved through introducing processes, guidelines and mechanism to ensure transparency, accountability and effective participation of all stakeholders. In addition sharing of capital cost for construction of water supply systems by all three tiers of government, communities and development partners/donors is a major thrust of financing mechanism. Selection of communities, LGAs and States is based on demand/performance driven-approach which is ensured through application of well established process for community and LGA selection. The programme has so far managed to develop processes, guidelines and mechanisms which were tested in the implementation of integrated delivery of water supply and sanitation services.
