Sustainable Urban Infrastructure Delivery in Enugu, Nigeria: The Role of the Private Sector

Iloeje A. F. | Aniagolu C. | Okwu-Delunzu A.


Abstract: The sustainability status of the Enugu urban infrastructure was examine using seven urban sustainability indicators, based on three dimensions of economic, social and environmental well-being of the citizens. Survey research method was used in which well-structured questionnaires were administered on 625, 000 respondents. Based on a 5-point scale measure of sustainability indicators, the total mean scores were as follows urban mobility indicator (UMI = 1.6383), waste management indicator (WMI = 1.8183), housing quality indicator (HQI = 1.8983), urban safety indicator (USI = 1.9850), economic urban sustainability indicator (ESI = 1.8217), green public space and heritage indicator (GPI = 2, 5117), citizens participation indicator (CPI = 2.6550). Only the GPI and CPI showed relatively high sustainability levels while the rest were very low indicating ineffectiveness. This suggests that the urban development plans and policies are deficient and fall below the global environmental friendly stipulations. A complete overhauling of the development strategies is therefore proposed for better results.
