Latest Vacancies and Recruitment at WaterAid

Apply For Latest Vacancies and Recruitment at WaterAid. With a population of over 150 million people, Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa. Political unrest, poor governance and corruption have led to decades of water shortages, while the population has increased rapidly. Though there is surface and ground water, rapid population growth, particularly in urban areas, has not been supported with additional resources. Only 11% of people have access to safe sanitation and 42% live without access to clean water. Funding for water, sanitation and hygiene is low and there is little coordination within the government. The poorest and most marginalized people live in unofficial slum settlements using expensive private services.
