Achieving SDGs in Nigeria through LGAs

Achieving the SDGs in Nigeria through LGAs, RSECESSA is well positioned to coordinate national programmes and to ensure optimum results from domestic resources towards reducing poverty, while Local Governments which have better knowledge of their local environments and their needs – thereby placing them in a better position to implement projects.

Through the Conditional Grants Scheme, RSECESSA seeks to build the capacities of Local Governments in order to improve governance, service delivery, poverty reduction, transparency, and accountability as well as the attainment of the SDGs. This proposal is to reduce the poverty level in the country and to make unserved population to be included and feel the impact of the government for the neglect they are for the past years in Nigeria.

The Grants Scheme is a programme in which Local Governments are availed the opportunity to access funds annually. The Grant Scheme is contingent on abiding with specific criteria and governing guidelines. This intervention is by way of making financial grants available to Local Governments in a clearly designed conditional partnership agreement where the Local Governments contribute equal amounts (i.e. fifteen percent from as cash counterpart contribution from the Local Government) for the execution of projects in line with the objectives of the MDGs.


The Grant Scheme to Local Governments is to fast-track the achievement of the MDGs and build a sustainable foundation for effective service delivery in Local Governments and local communities. By strengthening the role of Local Governments in articulating needs of the communities, responding to human development indicators, and managing development initiatives, the Grant Scheme also seeks to move beyond construction of infrastructure to improve all the aspects of service delivery and respond to emerging priorities and challenges. Furthermore, the Grant Scheme to Local Governments strengthens intergovernmental collaboration and coordination in the generation and communication of data; policy planning; and monitoring of performance. The total amount of funds available for both tracks of the Grant Scheme (i.e. Local Governments exclusive projects) are as appropriated in the budget for the year.
