Nigeria

Nigeria joined SWA in 2010. A national coordinating platform exists through the National Task Group on Sanitation (NTGS), Emergency Working Group and the Inter-Ministerial Dialogues on Sanitation which serve as a mechanism for engagement of government agencies with development partners, civil society organizations, private sector and the media. Similar structures also exist at State and Local Government levels. A WASH development partner platform exists at the national level which aims to enhance harmonization and coordination of WASH development assistance. Partners from all constituencies have tabled commitments in support of the government priorities in Nigeria.
