The National Environmental Sanitation Strategy and Action Plan (NESSAP) is a response to the need to refocus attention on environmental sanitation in Ghana and provide clear strategies and action plans that will guide implementation by Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs). It is a logical follow-up to the revision of the Environmental Sanitation Policy (1999) within the new framework of national planning that requires comprehensive sector policies and strategic plans and investment costs. The final NESSAP presents as much information as was reported by the MMDAs on the state of the environmental sanitation infrastructure and services. It defines resources required and implementation packages covering all the components of environmental sanitation. An accompanying Strategic Environmental Sanitation Investment Plan (SESIP) provides further details of funding requirements and the framework for allocating estimated funding-gaps for projected improvements by 2015. It therefore provides the basis for MMDAs to commence incremental improvements for all aspects of environmental sanitation that can be measured and tracked towards Government of Ghana’s vision of achieving middle-income status by 2020. The NESSAP in addition serves as a useful reference as it presents background information from different sources and detail analysis for incremental service improvement options for the various components of environmental sanitation.
