Syfte och mål

The conditions required for successful implementation of the most promising innovations were also going to be identified.
Resultat och förväntade effekter
According to all of the people interviewed, the people that we met in Lagos as well as our experience in Lagos there is an acute need for improved waste management in the city, state and the country. There also appears to be a political willingness to improve the waste management system in Lagos. The project team believes that local (Nigerian) people should develop and be responsible for strategies and business plans. The knowledge that Sweden has in waste management which is world leading will be of invaluable support to the development and implementation of strategies and business plans.
Upplägg och genomförande
It was very difficult to draw any conclusions from information from websites, non-peer reviewed reports or peer reviewed articles. Most websites do not give the date that the site was created (so that we did not know if the information was current) or the person responsible for the site. Discussions and interviews with the people before our trip yielded the necessary information. This was used to identify key people and institutions to meet during our trip to Nigeria and was also used to begin constructive discussions with these people and institutions.
