Nigeria Infrastructure Advisory Facility (NIAF)
ASI is currently implementing a major technical assistance project to provide the Government of Nigeria and other Nigerian institutions support to enable the country to improve the effectiveness with which infrastructure development is planned, financed and implemented.
The goal of the NIAF programme is ‘increased access to improved, reliable and affordable infrastructure services in Nigeria'. The purpose is to ‘enhance Government of Nigeria's capacity to better plan, finance and operate infrastructure delivery at the Federal and State levels. Towards this end, the programme will aim to deliver the following outputs:
- the promotion of new models for infrastructure planning, financing, operation and maintenance that make greater use of private-sector resources;
- capacity building and training for Federal and State governments relating to planning and contracting out of infrastructure construction, maintenance and operation activities;
- technical Assistance to federal and state government agencies, private companies and civil society bodies on the design and implementation of new ways to organise and finance infrastructure services; and
- as part of its annual reporting framework, reviews of progress on infrastructure development and its impact on broad-based economic growth.
