Building the Future: Infrastructure in Nigeria until 2040

A new report published by the Pardee Center and the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) explores a series of ambitious but realistic interventions to improve economic growth and development in Nigeria. Authors Julia Schunemann of ISS and Alex Porter, Research Associate at the Pardee Center, find that Nigeria’s basic physical infrastructure deficit severely undermines the country’s prospects for economic growth and development. Meanwhile, rapid population growth in Nigeria will compound the challenge of inadequate basic infrastructure. Building the Future: Infrastructure in Nigeria until 2040 uses IFs to take an integrated, longterm approach to accelerating Nigeria's infrastructure development. The report was launched at an event in Abuja on December 6, co-hosted by ISS and the delegation of the European Union to Nigeria.
