Provision of water, sanitation, health and educational services are important as a means to achieving the broader goals of poverty reduction and economic growth. The “service” perspective on these key sector areas has led sector practitioners away from the approach which focus on asset creation and maintenance towards the building of service delivery systems that provide continuous, reliable and affordable service. In Ghana the trend in these three sectors has been towards a decentralized, multi-sectoral, demand-driven and private-sector oriented service delivery. (authors abstract/introduction)
