Lessons are presented from a change process being undertaking in Ghana’s rural domestic water sector. The need for change has been triggered by the realisation that, as coverage in rural water increases, so too does the challenge of ensuring quality and sustainability of the water services being delivered. The change process is, therefore, aimed at facilitating the transition from a historic focus on building new infrastructure towards a new vision of providing sustainable domestic water services for all. The Country Team The paper describes the steps by which the International Water and Sanitation Centre (IRC), in collaboration with Ghana’s Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA) is working to increase awareness of the challenges faced in making rural water services sustainable, using this awareness as a basis for identifying areas for reform and innovation, and implementing these in pilots and at scale.
