In Northern region of Ghana, there have been a number of rural water projects implemented by various donors since 1994. The donors have all invested substantially in provision of rural water infrastructure in the Northern Region. However, little is known about the sustainability of these facilities. This report aims at documenting service delivery and the arrangements put in place to ensure sustainable rural water service provision in the Northern Region in Ghana. It gives an assessment of how and where these arrangements deviate from the guidelines and standards set by CWSA and the effect of this on sustainable service provision.
The Triple-S Project, in collaboration with Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA), has started collating experiences on water service provision in Ghana and challenges related to sustainable water service provision. In 2010 - 2011, a first round of case studies was undertaken in Volta and Northern regions.
