This uneven commitment to WSS and shaping its enabling environment is also reflected in vast disparities in rates of access to WSS services across states: from 81 percent in Lagos state to 13 percent in Sokoto state for water supply, and from 97 percent in Kano to 12 percent in Bayelsa for sanitation.  Estimates of the investment in WSS required to meet 2015 sector MDG targets range from US$2.5 billion (MDG Office) to US$4 billion annually (US$1.7 billion for water supply and US$2.3 billion for sanitation—CSO2 costing). Current spending, whilst being difficult to discern, is around a third of the CSO2 costing estimate.

"The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have been felt - at varying degrees - across all food sectors assessed by FAO.

It is useful to recall, in this context, that most SIDS whilst being devoid of fossil fuels, are the first victims of global warming. (...) There is indeed no single measure that would be suitable for all countries. Whilst it is recognized that transparent measures should be taken to address non-trade concerns, financial resource constraints are such that the "no more minimally trade-distorting" approach is inadequate in the case of most SIDS and smaller producers. (...) Mauritius believes that a cautious and pragmatic approach should be adopted when dealing with all forms of export competition as such measures have a positive incidence on the food procurement capacity of those countries which can only produce one or two commodities because of agro-climatic factors. Whilst export subsidies and credits are not perceived as long term solutions for food deficit developing countries, it cannot be denied that these measures have facilitated access to food supplies.

Even as the value of global merchandise trade shrank by more than 7% last year, trade in medical supplies increased by 16%, and by 50% for personal protective equipment, she noted. (...) The WTO can help with supply chain monitoring and transparency.” The second action is helping manufacturers scale up by “keeping supply lines open and matching underused capacity with unmet needs,” which DG Okonjo-Iweala declared as “necessary to save lives now”. (...) “I am hopeful that by July we can make progress on a text and by our Twelfth Ministerial Conference in December, WTO members can agree on a pragmatic framework that offers developing countries near automaticity in access to health technologies, whilst also preserving incentives for research and innovation.”

To ensure sustainability, an important part of UNDPs work is to promote development opportunities for the communities, whilst reducing the pressures on the forest. Around Amani Nature Forest Reserve, the team visited two villages where such initiatives are supported.   (...) Now, the community spends less time collecting water for their daily needs, whilst the riverbanks are used for growing crops such as black pepper, which in addition to hindering erosion provides an additional source of income for the community.  (...) The contributions described above may be small in a global perspective, but they are nonetheless critical to safeguard the environment and combat deforestation, whilst preserving the livelihoods of communities.

The housing solution should be inclusive in its service provision, nurture a sense of protection and belonging, and developed through a process that encourages beneficiaries to engage in the aesthetic and functional improvements of the dwelling. Whilst all aspects of adequate housing are interrelated, it is important to be explicit about each aspect, confirming that humanitarian assistance takes into consideration the habitability (adapting to the local housing typologies, in rural or urban contexts), accessibility (for marginalized groups), location, security of tenure and so on. (...) Stable households often become female-headed or single-headed households in displacement whilst youth and men are mobilized to fight. Further, whilst younger generations are likely to leave their place of origin, people with mobility impairments are unable or unwilling to flee their homes and communities. (...) Additional accompaniment activities, such as protection services needs to be offered to people that were already marginalized before the conflict (minority groups, indigenous groups, non-nationals, members of the LGTBQ+ community, and others). Whilst we have guidance for housing and property restitution, the policy and procedural recommendations are not consistently actioned and it is important to also acknowledge the housing status of those who have customary land or property ownership, live in rental accommodation, particularly through the informal shelter market, and all the more those who faced housing insecurity or homelessness before armed conflict.
