Experience from Ghana and many other countries around the world shows that rural people’s need for water is not only limited to domestic use. Water is also a valuable asset for the livelihoods of rural households. This briefing note presents WASHCost Ghana findings on the pattern of water use by people living in the rural areas of Ghana, and shows the wide range of sources -- formal or informal -- used by rural communities to meet their multiple needs.
