The World Bank has approved a $700 million credit for the Nigeria Sustainable Urban and Rural Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene Programme (SURWASH).
The $700 million credit is from the bank’s International Development Association (IDA).
It is a body which helps the world’s poorest countries by providing grants and low to zero-interest loans for projects and programs that boost economic growth, reduce poverty and improve poor people’s lives.
It made the announcement in a statement on its website in Washington D. C. on Thursday.
According to the statement, the credit will provide six million people with basic drinking water services and 1.4 million people access to improved sanitation services.
It would also deliver improved Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) services to 2,000 schools and Health Care Facilities and assist 500 communities to achieve open defecation free status.
These would be implemented as part of the Federal Government’s National Action Plan (NAP) for the revitalisation of Nigeria’s water supply, sanitation and hygiene sector……….TO CONTINUE READING CLICK ON https://thefreezonechannel.com/world-bank-approves-700m-credit-for-water-sanitation-hygiene-in-nigeria/
