Nigeria’s 2004 National Policy on Population for Sustainable Development: Implementation Assessment Report
Cover Image

Author(s): National Population Commission of Nigeria and the Health Policy Project

Primary Language: English

Date: 9/15/2015


With a current population exceeding 170 million, the Federal Republic of Nigeria is the seventh-largest country in the world and the most populous in Africa. Despite the introduction of policies and programs over the last 30 years to address Nigeria’s rapid population growth and the challenges it poses for development, the country is projected to become the third-largest nation in the world by mid-century (United Nations Population Division, 2015). These continuing demographic trends—coupled with emerging national priorities and new international development frameworks—created the need to assess the implementation of Nigeria’s 2004 Policy on Population for Sustainable Development (henceforth NPP, or the policy). Results from this USAID-funded Health Policy Project assessment are intended to guide the formulation of a revised policy and the approaches needed to realize its goals and objectives.
