Community based infrastructure in Nigeria are easily spoilt and abandoned soonest after commissioning. In some cases, where the location of the project is not acceptable to a large proportion of the community members, the infrastructure may remain largely unused and/or vandalized. ARMTI’s interaction with community members has shown that community participation is cardinal to the management and sustainability of infrastructure. Therefore, the capacity of programme development stakeholders should be strengthened to involve the target beneficiaries of rural infrastructure in the process of planning, execution, monitoring and evaluation of such infrastructure.
