|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.|
