Abstract

Rural Water Supply and Sanitation (RWSS) development in Nigeria has constantly suffered from lack of clear policy direction and lack of focus in terms of goals and objectives. This has resulted in the country’s inability to substantially improve coverage of the rural population with safe water and improved sanitation services. This is particularly obvious in the field of sanitation and hygiene. Also the poor management of water and sanitation resources are the impediment to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Therefore the paper discusses the future and success of government, NGO and private sector collaboration in rural water and sanitation programme implementation.
