The National Urban Water Sector Reform Project (NUWSRP) II intends to develop an infrastructure that contributes to the economic development of the country, the well-being of the population, promotion of balanced and sustainable economic growth and reduction of inequalities in Lagos and Cross River States.
The project has three complementary objectives:
- To improve the reliability of water production (treatment plants);
- To improve the access to water supply networks in selected areas;
- To improve the commercial viability of participating water utilities.
The World Bank has been financing the NUWSRP II in Lagos to the tune of USD$135.6million dollars since 2005 while the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) is supporting the project with USD$33.8million in Lagos alone.
Agence Française de Développement (AFD) is a financial institution and the main implementing agency for France’s official development assistance to developing countries and overseas territories.
