Challenges of inter-sectoral monitoring of developments in the provision of water and sanitation services in Nigeria
Keywords:water, sanitation, knowledge management
AbstractNigeria, the most populous country in Africa, faces major challenges in reaching the Millennium Development Goals’ (MDGs) water and sanitation targets of halving the proportion of unserved people. These are challenges that will not go away overnight, and meeting them will require concerted efforts by government and civil society. A key part of these efforts is improving knowledge management in the sector: not just monitoring progress, but using the data to explore how new projects are improving coverage of improved drinking water supply and sanitation services and evaluating the impact on households.
