This briefing note presents WASHCost Ghana's findings on the expenditure required to fund sustainable services at decentralised levels. It provides insight on possible remedial actions that can be taken to correct the adverse impact of inadequate expenditure on direct support to water service delivery. Specifically, it makes a contribution in discerning the funding levels needed by WASH service authorities at decentralised levels to provide effective support services at local level.
