Ghana Triple-S initiative

The  Community Water and Sanitation Agency  (CWSA) is leading Triple-S in Ghana in partnership with  IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre .

Why focus on sustainability of rural water supplies?

Rural water supply has been successfully extended to 65-76% of the rural population and Ghana is on track to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) target for water. But behind this success are a complex set of challenges to turn newly provided water infrastructure into water services that last.

At any given time, a substantial proportion of water supply infrastructure is either not functioning or functioning sub-optimally. This is a challenge across the developing world, and the pioneering work done by CWSA is helping to provide solutions that can also benefit other countries.
