Water Supply and Sanitation Programme in Nigeria

IBG has been the lead consultant with responsibility of implementing this multidisciplinary programme in the sectors of water supply and sanitation in the northern Nigerian State of Jigawa. The programme is setting the basis for sustainable improvement in the sector, and is composed of a mixture of “software” (training, hygiene education, institutional strengthening) and “hardware” input (rehabilitation, upgrading, and construction). Its main goal is to reduce the burden on the urban poor through tangible improvements in the delivery of water.
