Even though the World Bank says that Ghana will become the fastest growing economy in sub-Saharan Africa in 2018, the country still has pockets of poverty, exclusion and inequity in access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services. Ghana has a WASH safety net and social protection policies, but challenges remain. The Asutifi North Ahonidie Mpontuo (ANAM) - or Clean Asutifi North Initiative aims to reach the target of Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6), which means ensuring that everyone has access to sustainable safe water and sanitation services by 2030. The district, providers, supporting NGOs and the communities are partnering to implement a WASH masterplan. The plan maps the district’s unserved and identifies the dilemmas that need to be overcome to ensure that no one is left behind. A presentation for the IRC WASH Debate “Leaving no one behind; social inclusion in the WASH sector”, held on 18 April 2018 in The Hague, the Netherlands. The presentation itself can be viewed on the Twitter livestream of the WASH Debate (starts/ends at: 37:40-56:10).

Abstract

Even though the World Bank says that Ghana will become the fastest growing economy in sub-Saharan Africa in 2018, the country still has pockets of poverty, exclusion and inequity in access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services. Ghana has a WASH safety net and social protection policies, but challenges remain. The Asutifi North Ahonidie Mpontuo (ANAM) - or Clean Asutifi North Initiative aims to reach the target of Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6), which means ensuring that everyone has access to sustainable safe water and sanitation services by 2030. The district, providers, supporting NGOs and the communities are partnering to implement a WASH masterplan. The plan maps the district’s unserved and identifies the dilemmas that need to be overcome to ensure that no one is left behind. A presentation for the IRC WASH Debate “Leaving no one behind; social inclusion in the WASH sector”, held on 18 April 2018 in The Hague, the Netherlands. The presentation itself can be viewed on the Twitter livestream of the WASH Debate (starts/ends at: 37:40-56:10).
