What impacts has private sector participation had on the delivery of urban water services and on customer satisfaction and willingness to pay for these services in Ghana?

With the specific reference to water policy in Ghana, this dissertation will examine the policy of public sector participation (PSP) in urban metropolis (Privatisation). The World Bank (WB), International Monetary Fund (IMF) and international donor agencies have pressurised Ghana into water privatisation. This policy shift from the public sector water policy to a private and public-private partnership (PPP) in water delivery is meant to improve the infrastructural, management and the cost of water production. Furthermore, I used qualitative methods with a focus on primary data. Data was assessed by semi-structured technique to interview thirteen water industry experts and eleven randomly selected participants for a questionnaire survey. The study explores the advantages and difficulties of the policy. [authors abstract]
