Project Overview

Ghana's utilities sector includes the Water, Sanitation and Electricity Sectors. Ghana water sector is segmented into two parts and are identified as the Urban Water Sector and Community Water sector. The Urban Water sector comprises about 87 cities and towns where the national water utility-the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) owns and manages water supply. The sector is under the dual authority of the Ministry of Water Resources, Works and Housing and of the Ministry ...

Ghana's utilities sector includes the Water, Sanitation and Electricity Sectors. Ghana water sector is segmented into two parts and are identified as the Urban Water Sector and Community Water sector. The Urban Water sector comprises about 87 cities and towns where the national water utility-the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) owns and manages water supply. The sector is under the dual authority of the Ministry of Water Resources, Works and Housing and of the Ministry of Local Government, Rural Development and Environment. The Community Water sector deals with over 16,000 rural communities and some 287 small towns. The management of water supply is the responsibility of District Assemblies with facilitation and oversight role by the Community Water and Sanitation Agency. Municipal assemblies and districts are responsible for investment, operations and maintenance of water and sanitation infrastructure within the community water sector. The Environment and Sanitation Sub-sector covers liquid and solid waste management disposal. . The total population Approximately 10.3 million people (51%) have access to improve water supplies in Ghana.For the 8.3 million residents in the country's urban areas this increases slightly to 61% with two thirds of these or 40% of the total urban population covered by Ghana Water Company Limited networks. With Ghana Water Company Limited unaccounted-for water at about 50% of total output, the volume of water that is effectively sold (280,000m3/day) is less than half of the daily demand (763,300m3) The above figures quoted was published by Ghana Water Company Limited. The situation is more serious than one imagine because Ghanaian current population stands at 24 million plus, we can meet the demand of 10.3 million. Ghana unlike some countries where water is is scarce, Ghana is blessed with several water bodies but the management and protection of our waters have led to water crisis situation in Ghana, not to talk about some major areas of the capital city of Ghana. Water and sanitation has grown from bad to worse and frightening situation is about 75% of disease are from our water we use. The situation is also attributed to rapid growth in settlements, environmental degradation etc. The Key project goals, objectives: 1. Urban water supply 2. To promote water management 3. Promote water delivery to everybody 4. Provide portable water and reduce 5. Eliminate water scarcity terms of economy, efficiency, effectiveness and satisfaction. 6. Provide Portable Water 7. Sufficient Water 8. Efficient Water 9. Educate the public on water, Climate Change, sanitation and environment. 10. Clean water distribution Improve safe water The water supply an sanitation infrastructure is very important because water and sanitation infrastructure is not sufficient. The activities also depend on the choice of our partners but below are major areas: 1. Small towns Pipe Schemes 2. Rain Harvest Plants 3. Network expansion to poor areas 4.Increase reliability of water to poor areas.
