In a new report "Equal to the task: financing for a state of emergency in water supply, sanitation and hygiene" consider the financing challenges facing Nigeria’s WASH sector. Based on research and analysis from Development Initiatives, the report highlights Nigeria’s past human development progress in the WASH sector and the challenges facing the country over the coming decade. These include the capability of key institutions; availability of relevant data; power deficits and outages; and limited equity and sustainability in the delivery of services. A growing population, rapid urbanisation and climate change add to the challenges facing the Nigerian authorities at federal, state and local levels.
