USAID Plans $45 Million Lagos Urban WASH Scheme
By Chinedum Uwaegbulam
To ensure potable and safe water supply, United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has launched an intervention programme in Lagos, which will promote operational reforms, infrastructure improvements and institutional capacity building.
Known as Lagos Urban Water, Sanitation and Health (LUWASH), the project would focus on improving the financial and technical capabilities, as well as governance of the WASH sector. This will include but is not limited to utilities, private sector providers and institutions tasked with monitoring and enforcement of regulations.
