Niger - Study
FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF DECENTRALIZED COOPERATION MECHANISMS
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.
