Abstract:

BMI View: We view the Nigerian water sector as extremely underdeveloped, with limited mains water access, extremely poor sanitation, and an incoherent regulatory system. However, over the longer term, we take a more positive view, and expect that the substantial investment into sanitation and mains distribution, as well as new regulations to prevent open defecation, should have a significant impact on the quality and availability of water in Nigeria. All the emphasis remains on transport and power infrastructure, and as we expect this to remain the core focus of the government, aid bodies and investors alike, we take an extremely downbeat view of the water sector over the coming years. The water and sanitation infrastructure will not only remain non-existent outside of the main urban hubs, and fairly negligible in the main cities themselves, but the creation of a formal, well-regulated water and sanitation sector, either state-owned or private, is highly unlikely over the next five years, even on a municipal level in the larger cities. We therefore continue to adhere to our view of Nigeria as the least attractive water sector out of those BMI covers, and the one offering the least opportunities at present. ...Moreover, in the longer term between ---- and ----, the sheer size of the developments needed driven by government targets, along with the vast population and rapidly growing industrial and commercial sectors, have the potential to provide numerous opportunities for water infrastructure and water services companies alike. In particular, we expect that in future years, as the infrastructure finally receives the much-needed funding and focus, we anticipate that construction and operation agreements will become more prevalent, with groups building and then managing water and sanitation facilities, as the government looks to shift some of the financial burden onto the private sector.

Poor sanitation has resulted in widespread disease, particularly cholera, which is likely to be exacerbated as the population rises. There are still a number of sizeable bottlenecks present within Nigeria s business environment that are likely to hinder progress and deter investors. ...Poor sanitation has resulted in widespread disease, particularly cholera, which is likely to be exacerbated as the population rises.

...Nigeria is the most densely populated country in Africa, with the number of inhabitants rapidly rising. As such, there are substantial growth opportunities within the underdeveloped water sector. ...
