The Water and Sanitation sector is highly unreliable and inadequate in Nigeria. There have been series of efforts and approaches (from Governments, Civil Societies or NGOs, Consulting Firms, Academia, Development Partners or Donors, Business or Private Sectors, Multilaterals, and Others) over the last decade in improving the quality and quantity of water available to households and its related institutional challenges. Despite all these efforts from various sectors in Nigeri…
The Water and Sanitation sector is highly unreliable and inadequate in Nigeria. There have been series of efforts and approaches (from Governments, Civil Societies or NGOs, Consulting Firms, Academia, Development Partners or Donors, Business or Private Sectors, Multilaterals, and Others) over the last decade in improving the quality and quantity of water available to households and its related institutional challenges. Despite all these efforts from various sectors in Nigeria, households most especially in rural underserved communities are still forced to rely on an unsafe sources of water for drinking and other household uses: such as unprotected wells, rivers, open streams, and ponds.
Furthermore, there has also been no implementation of a comprehensive approach that incorporates collaboration with innovations for the coordination and management of available water facilities, leading to system breaks down. This has further led to duplicated interventions resulting in more deteriorated water facilities, financial wastes and causing communities to become water facilities’ graveyards. As a result, many communities are still suffering and being neglected their basic needs. The target 6.1 mapping exercise has critically assessed the components of a functioning water system within communities across three states in Nigeria, leading to the development of a simple, but comprehensive end-to-end cycle coordination and management system that are color-coded. We are seeking supports and partnership to extend the Target 6.1 mapping exercise to other communities in Nigeria, and Africa at large. Our research through the Target 6.1 Map, can be viewed at (https://fairaction.com.au/target6-1-map/).
