Table of Contents

The Nigerian water sector is struggling after many years of poor management, but there are now growing opportunities for international players who have strategies for tackling this challenging market. This report will give you the tactics you need for overcoming these obstacles and for capitalising on the emerging opportunities.

A series of new reforms coupled with a government who encourages international involvement makes this a good market for foreign companies. Private sector participation is strongly encouraged for all capital infrastructure projects and some states are implementing frameworks to facilitate public-private partnerships.

This is your guide to the state governments who offer the best opportunities for the private sector. We identify the best prospects for your business and show you how you can capitalise on these emerging opportunities. The report offers analysis of the water sector challenges and prospects, strategies for entering the market plus comprehensive forecasts and a database of utilities.

Market drivers and opportunities

The Nigerian government is reforming the water and wastewater sector and giving them significant priority. In the past it has been neglected, but it has recently been bought under the water resources ministry to ensure that it is given adequate attention.

There will be good opportunities in this market as a result of the government’s plans to address the country’s infrastructure problems. Private sector participation will be positively encouraged to close the gap between funding and needs – we show you how this will open up huge opportunities providing for the international private sector and we give you concrete strategies for success in this challenging market.

The two regions with the biggest opportunities will be Lagos state and Ogun state:

Lagos State
Lagos state is committed to encouraging foreign private sector participation and investment. In 2008, the Lagos state government set up a PPP office to develop, promote and monitor local infrastructure projects and to provide assistance to participants. They also implemented a number of water sector reforms to increase the attractiveness of large-scale private sector investments.

The main opportunities will be in:
Water infrastructure – $2.5 billion will be invested in water infrastructure to meet growing demand. The private sector is expected to play an important role and the government are aiming to make PPP procurement terms more flexible to facilitate this – we show you exactly how the market works in practice – including analysis of supply chains and procurement models – so you can take advantage of the growth in this region.
Wastewater treatment infrastructure – we show you how initiatives in Lagos are creating major opportunities in wastewater treatment. The private sector is expected to fund a large proportion of the expenditure that is required so now is the time to understand the emerging opportunities and plan your entry into this market.

Ogun State
The Ogun state government have big plans to restructure the Ogun State Water Corporation. The aim is to modernise operations and to create a legal and regulatory framework that facilitate and promote PPP’s.

Expenditure will primarily be focused on new WTP’s and network expansion, so if these needs match your business portfolio then this report will give you every tool you need to understand the market and formalise your business plan.
