In Ghana, efforts are being made by the Government, its development partners and donors to increase rural water coverage. This is as a result of the need to increase access to potable water and achieve the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 7 of halving the proportion of people without access to potable water by the year 2015. The Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA) has facilitated the provision of a large number of rural water supply infrastructures in the country. This huge investment in infrastructure has increased the rural water coverage in Ghana over the past years from 40% in 2000 to 63% in 2011. The rural water coverage in Brong Ahafo region has also seen significant increase over the past years from 18% in 1994 to 56% in 2011. The 2011 water coverage for rural water supply in Ghana is 7% more than the coverage of Brong Ahafo Region. However, the 2011 rural water coverage for Sunyani West District is lower (41%) compared to the regional coverage of 56%. [authors abstract]

Abstract

In Ghana, efforts are being made by the Government, its development partners and donors to increase rural water coverage. This is as a result of the need to increase access to potable water and achieve the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 7 of halving the proportion of people without access to potable water by the year 2015. The Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA) has facilitated the provision of a large number of rural water supply infrastructures in the country. This huge investment in infrastructure has increased the rural water coverage in Ghana over the past years from 40% in 2000 to 63% in 2011. The rural water coverage in Brong Ahafo region has also seen significant increase over the past years from 18% in 1994 to 56% in 2011. The 2011 water coverage for rural water supply in Ghana is 7% more than the coverage of Brong Ahafo Region. However, the 2011 rural water coverage for Sunyani West District is lower (41%) compared to the regional coverage of 56%. [authors abstract]
