  1. 1. FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCESMID-TERM REPORTON WATER SECTOR TRANSFORMATION(2011 – 2013)By:Honourable Minister of Water Resources17th June, 2013.Presented at:The 2013 Ministerial Platformat theNational Press Centre, Radio House, Abuja.
  3. 3. FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCES 3INTRODUCTIONWater is life and critical to human existence. Excess water or insufficient waternot properly managed is devastating to both man and environment. Since thecreation of man, the aggregate volume of water within the hydrosphere hassubstantially remained constant in spite of increasing population, which impliesthe per capita share is decreasing on a daily basis. Over 70% of the earth’ssurface is covered by water, but only 2.7% of this is freshwater. The worldrelies on freshwater for socio-economic development. Over 50% is locked up inice caps in the polar regions of the earth; the balance is what is found in form ofrivers, lakes and other fresh water bodies. Over 50% of this freshwater iscontrolled by only five (5) countries (viz: China, Brazil, Indonesia, Russia andCanada).Water is life
  4. 4. FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCES 4INTRODUCTION (CONT’D)Countries seek to harness as much as possible the freshwater that circulateswithin their boundaries, by constructing dams, reservoirs and other appropriateinfrastructure to utilize water efficiently. The Federal Ministry of WaterResources is involved in Integrated Water Resources Management for theoptimal use of this resource. The primary aim of the Ministry is therefore tocontrol as much as possible this water for overall industrial development andflood management. This is basically to ensure that there is enough water forthe various sectoral needs such as domestic use, agriculture, powergeneration, solid mineral and Industrial development, tourism etc.Water is life
  5. 5. FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCES 5INTRODUCTION (CONT’D)Nigeria has annual water resources potential of 319 billion cubic metresconsisting of 267 billion cubic metres surface water and 52 billion cubicmetres groundwater. The optimal development of this resource willprotect the nation from drought, flood, erosion and increasingenvironmental challenges.050100150200250300Surface WaterGround Water26752BillionCubicMetersWater SourceWater Resources Potential
  6. 6. FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCESFOCUS OF THE MINISTRYThe Federal Ministry of Water Resources is responsible for theformulation of Policy and Legal Framework to enhance integrateddevelopment and management of Water Resources in the areas of: Potable Water Supply and Sanitation; Dams development and reservoir operation for floodcontrol, bulk raw water supply, hydropower generation,irrigation, fisheries development, etc.; Construction and operation of Irrigation infrastructure, landreclamation and drainage; and Enhancement of ecosystem balance through regularmonitoring and dissemination of hydrological data6
  7. 7. FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCESRE-ESTABLISHMENT OF THE MINISTRYPrior to the inception of this Administration, water resourcesdevelopment and management were part of the mandate of the defunctFederal Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources and this led to thegross neglect of water resources management with far reachingconsequences.In order to accord priority to water resources development andmanagement, FMWR was re-established by this Administration.Following this re-birth an emergency Meeting of the National Council onWater Resources was held to review critical issues affecting the sectorwith a view to developing appropriate strategies for water sectortransformation in the country.The Ministry has five (5) Technical Departments, four (4) CommonServices Departments, Ten (10) Units, Four (4) Agencies and Twelve(12) River Basin Development Authorities (RBDAs).7
  8. 8. FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCES 8RIVER BASIN DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITIESThe River Basin Development Authorities (RBDAs) were set up asorgans of government for grassroots development in the water sector.However, due to policy reversals, they were unable to perform optimallyand this led to discontinuation of a number of very laudable peopleoriented programmes, stripping them of operational assets throughauctioning, as well as leaving many projects uncompleted for a longtime.Following the re-establishment of the Federal Ministry of WaterResources, the RBDAs were re-organized to make them moreresponsive towards the development of rural water schemes, nationalfood security and accelerated grassroots development.The critical areas of reorganization include:• The establishment of a Department of River Basin Operations andInspectorate (RBO&I) for effective coordination;
  9. 9. FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCES 9• Review of the governance structure- Creation of four Directorates instead of three as itwas in the past;- Determination of appropriate manning level leading to theappointment of Managing Directors and four (4) ExecutiveDirectors drawn from career professionals. This was not thecase in the past;• Optimal utilization of available land and water resources to supportincreased food production through irrigation;• Adoption of performance measurement mechanisms to ensure theattainment of key performance indicators (KPIs) by RBDAs.RIVER BASIN DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITIES (CONT’D)

  11. 11. FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCESMID-TERM REVIEW OF THE WATER SECTOR (2011 – 2013)Within the period under review, Mr. President directed a nationwideassessment of all uncompleted Federal Government Infrastructureprojects across the country. The report of the assessment revealed asizeable number of such projects in the Water Sector arising frompolicy reversals and budgetary constraints.The Ministry was therefore directed to ensure a systematic completionof the projects. Consequently, within available budgetary provisionsand special interventions by Mr. President, the Ministry and River BasinDevelopment Authorities (RBDAs) have made modest achievements inthe implementation, execution and completion of several projects andprogrammes across the country in the areas of:11

  60. 60. FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCES 60CHALLENGESThe tasks of carrying through the Transformation Agenda in the Water Sector arequite demanding but the Ministry has over the mid-term period remained resolute todeliver on its sectoral mandate against all odds. Some of the challenges arehighlighted below:• Resource constraint: The relatively low budget allocation to the sector over theyears has militated against the realization of set targets. In addition, budgetreleases have been inadequate and untimely;• Budget Implementation Period: Budget implementation period is effectively lessthan one year thereby affecting Project execution which utilizes the dry season forconstruction;• Weak Synergy between the Ministry and State/Local Governments;• Non-payment for bulk water supply by States and FCT to the Ministry;• Unsustained appropriation for constituency projects.
  61. 61. FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCES 61CHALLENGES (CONT’D)• Climate Change : Additional cost of rehabilitating damaged infrastructureafter flooding and constructing new systems in drought prone areas;• Fewer Dams on the Benue river system ; More dams are required on theBenue river to mitigate the challenge of flooding and prevent losses of livesand properties;• Inadequate and obsolete equipment in the RBDAs hindered optimalperformance;• Security challenges: There are frequent Communal disputes in some ProjectLocations impacting negatively on early projects completion;• Inadequate hydrological monitoring stations for better prediction ofhydrological events.
  62. 62. FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCES 62In conclusion , the present Administration’s Transformation Agenda has facilitated increasedaccess to water supply from 58% to 65% and sanitation from 32% to 41% through thecompletion of nine additional dams, increased hectarage under irrigation by over 31,000hectares with resultant increase in food production and enhancement of food security.In all, the water sector has generated job and created wealth for both skilled and unskilledlabour force from the various completed and on-going projects nationwide. We are indebtedto Mr. President for the bold step of re-establishing the Federal Ministry of Water Resourceswhich has enhanced Nigeria’s capacity to judiciously manage its water resources.On behalf of myself, the entire staff of the Ministry, its Agencies and Parastatals, I expressour sincere appreciation to Mr. President, His Excellency Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan,GCFR, for his exemplary leadership in championing the cause of water resourcesdevelopment. We pledge our unalloyed commitment to the full realization of theTransformation Agenda.CONCLUSION
