Ghana - Urban Environmental Sanitation Project (English)

The objectives of the Urban Environmental Sanitation Project are: 1) to promote productivity and raise living standards in Ghana's major cities, especially for lower-income people, by improving drainage, sanitation, and solid waste services; 2) to help establish better institutional and financing mechanisms and more effective policy frameworks so that improvements are sustained overtime; and 3) to build up the capacity of the Metropolitan and Municipal Assemblies to manage environmental sanitation services. The project will cover Ghana's five major cities: Accra, Kumasi, Sekondi-Takoradi, Tema, and Tamale. It will have five main components: 1) storm drainage; 2) sanitation; 3) solid waste; 4) upgrading of low-income urban areas; and 5) capacity-building.
