Estonian Water Works Association (EVEL) is carrying out a project “Site Inspection on the Feasibility of the ‘Development and Implementation of the Nigeria Water Education’ program”.

Aim of the project is to carry out preparatory activities for the development and potential launch of water education program in Nigeria. During the visit, experts from EVEL Vahur Värk (project manager and partner in Entec Eesti OÜ) and Erki Lember (lecturer from Tallinn University of Applied Sciences) in cooperation with the Nigerian experts will examine the feasibility of the water education program in the country. The visit will result in an expert opinion on the potential realisation of the development program. Expert opinion contains views, attitudes and interest, collected from the stakeholders in various program areas (Lagos, Uyo and Abuja), towards the implementation of the program. At the same time, the project examines the condition and management of the existing water infrastructure, draws conclusions and makes recommendations regarding the support and implementation of the education program for the national donors in Estonia. Visit to Nigeria will be organized from 05th to 16th of March 2017. A summary of the visit will be available on the international World Water Day event organized on the 22nd of March 2017 at the Energy Discovery Centre in Tallinn.

The total cost of the project EUR 15,000 is financed from the Development Cooperation funds provided by the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Cooperation partners of the project include Tallinn University of Applied Sciences, Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and NGO Pan African Vision for the Environment (PAVE).
