The Sustainable Procurement, Environmental and Social Standards Enhancement (SPESSE) Program is an $80 Million capacity building project targeted at sustainably enhancing capacity in managing procurement, environment and social (E&S) standards in the public and private sectors in Nigeria. This project is critical to the Government of Nigeria as it contributes directly to the current administration’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP), which is aimed at accelerating structural reforms to alleviate increasing poverty and inequality by: bringing consistency to the monetary and fiscal policy, spurting job-creation through policies consistent with private sector development, and creating sustainable fiscal space for desperately needed investments in human and physical capitals and importantly, reduce the cost of governance.
