Under on-going reforms in its development policies, the Government of Ghana (GoG), through the Ghana Water and Sewerage Corporation (GWSC), set up the Community Water and Sanitation Division (CWSD). The National Community Water and Sanitation Programme (NCWSP), a programme of the CWSD was launched in 1994 as a means of implementing the Government’s new sector policy for rural and small town community water and sanitation. The Government’s role under the NCWSP is to evolve from one of active involvement towards encouraging greater user- community, self-reliance, ownership and management of water and sanitation services. The International Development Agency (IDA) an affiliate of the World Bank (WB), through the on-going Community Water and Sanitation Project (CWSP-1), has supported the NCWSP. In the course of reviewing the CWSP-1, a follow-up project (CWSP-2) was identified as a means of building upon the achievements of CWSP-1 and to support the district water and sanitation programmes within the broader context of on-going decentralisation reforms and other rural development initiatives. The CWSD was made responsible for preparing the new project. The review also identified the need for a Unit Cost study to assist the implementation of CWSP-2.
