The final aim of the project is to recognize and regularise the activities, roles, and institutional position of water vendors in Lagos State, and by facilitating capacity building, intermediation, coordination, and partnership between Lagos Water Corporation (LWC) and water vendors, state authorities can set the stage for better delivery of safe water services to the urban poor. This means encouraging operators who can sustain low-cost provision of these services to low-income and informal urban settlements-not creating new enterprises but supporting existing ones that have been catering to this market for many years.

Self Supply is defined as user investment in household water treatment, supply construction or up-grading, or rainwater harvesting. It is based on incremental improvements in steps which are easily replicable, with technologies affordable to users. Such improvements provide safer, more convenient and reliable water to many of those who live in dispersed households or on the periphery of inadequate or unreliable services. These are often the poorer and harder-to-reach members of society.
