Water Supply and Sanitation Sector Reform Programme



The WSSSRP was a continuation of the EC support to Water Law in Nigeria with a total budget of Euro 119.63 million (EC, Federal Govt Nigeria, Unicef). The project provided broad interventions across four fronts to achieve improved water supply and sanitation under an entirely new policy and institutional framework and water sector reform, resulting in improved decentralised delivery of services. The project worked with 39 Local Government Authorities in 6 States to benefit 3 million people from 1,400 rural communities and 60 small towns. LTS expert input was concerned with advising and ensuring that policy and law developed at the State level was harmonised with Federal Water Law. The Federal Water Law was concerned with new forms of decentralised administration and management of water including river basin commissions as well as privatised management of infrastructure. Consequently the law now being developed at the State level must provide the appropriate legal basis for these new institutional arrangements and forms of management and these must be compliant with the national constitution.
