Background and objectives
Following successful implementation of the Sustainable Ibadan Programme (SIP), the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing undertook to extend the Sustainable Cities Programme (SCP) to the Northern and Eastern Regions of Nigeria in the cities of Kano and Enugu. UN-Habitat provided funding to establish the replication process with UNDP funding out of the national management of socio-economic programme. UNDP provides $300,000, and each of the states contributing $125,000.
The programme will replicate the environmental planning and management (EPM) approach in the three cities and extend it to other cities in Nigeria. The FMW&H has a federal coordinating office to provide support to the three cities and to other cities interested in the programme. UN-Habitat will provide technical assistance in the EPM and environmental management information system.
Starting SCP process in Kano and Enugu, consolidating achievements of SIP,
developing development strategies for Ibadan, implementing investment projects identified through the EPM, developing a national SCP programme and sharing experience with other cities.
