Under the heading of 'Political Will: Creating Sustainable WASH Services' several examples from Ghana are mentioned which highlight political will in increased water service delivery, ending open defecation and getting sustainable WASH to those most in need. One of the examples is about the positive influence of Triple-S:

'In the mid-1990s the Ghanaian government recognized rural areas were lagging. In 1998 in an effort to boost rural efforts, an act of parliament created the Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA). CWSA is now leading rural sustainability efforts through Triple-S (Sustainable Services at Scale) in partnership with IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre. After the assessment of the current situation in Ghana, CWSA, through Triple-S is making huge improvements in sustainable rural water services.'
