USAID launches new, safer water and sanitation activity for 6 states


The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) will official launch of the Effective Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Services (E-WASH) activity.
In a statement to Apex News from the US Embassy in Abuja Tuesday, it will be launched by USAID Mission Director Stephen Haykin Wednesday.
The E-WASH seeks to improve the performance of Water Boards in six states in providing improved water supply services for the urban population.
The six states are Abia, Delta, Imo, Niger, Sokoto and Taraba.
The project aims to assist the water boards to demonstrate that better performing utilities can raise the quality of services for their customers, facilitate economic performance in the service area, improve utility finances through a reduction or better targeting of subsidies, and increase the chance of serving all customers in their area.  According to the statement, the event will also include a panel discussion of experts discussing issues critical to improving the water and sanitation sector in Nigeria.
