Towards integrated urban water management in the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area : current status and strategic directions for the future

Accra is the administrative, political and commercial capital of Ghana. Providing water and sanitation services to all in a fast growing, largely unplanned city like Accra and managing water in an efficient and integrated way, is a huge challenge. This document presents the results of the contribution of the Accra Learning Alliance, within the framework of the SWITCH project to the development of a strategic plan for integrated urban water management for the city of Accra to address this challenge. This takes the form of the definition of a vision for water management and water related services in the city of Accra of the future, a comprehensive situational analysis, and strategic directions for going from the current situation towards the vision.

Accra is the administrative, political and commercial capital of Ghana. Providing water and sanitation services to all in a fast growing, largely unplanned city like Accra and managing water in an efficient and integrated way, is a huge challenge. This document presents the results of the contribution of the Accra Learning Alliance, within the framework of the SWITCH project to the development of a strategic plan for integrated urban water management for the city of Accra to address this challenge. This takes the form of the definition of a vision for water management and water related services in the city of Accra of the future, a comprehensive situational analysis, and strategic directions for going from the current situation towards the vision.
