At the High Level Forum organized by the Centre Régional pour l'Eau Potable et l'Assainissement à faible coût (CREPA) in Ouagadougou in December 2011, the Government of

Niger expressed its intention to encourage decentralized cooperation in the water and sanitation sectors. To this end, a request was made by the Ministry of Water and Environment to GWS to support the implementation of a strategy of decentralized water cooperation in Niger. This study analyses the situation in the country for the development of such strategy.

The specific objectives of the study are:

  • Assess existing and potential initiatives at local or national level that can help finance access to water supply and sanitation services to the poor;
  • Identify existing opportunities in countries of the North in co-financing such initiatives and the means to do so;
  • Map the priority territories eligible for these opportunities and determine the types of services to be provided;
  • Define a mechanism for decentralized solidarity financing consistent with the policy of the Ministry of Water and Environment.

The study is available in French.
