GNWP has been built around 3 main pillars: infrastructure development, behavioural change and capacity building. The programme strives towards innovation, for example in relation to public-private collaboration, funding mechanisms and sanitation marketing. Innovations are needed to realise the ambition to provide all Ghanaians sustainable basic water and sanitation services by 2025.
A Technical Assistance (TA) has been contracted to make GNWP ready for implementation from 2015 to 2020. This year, the TA will already start implementing the behavioural change and WASH in Schools sub-programmes.
In the 5 selected municipalities, Municipal Coordinating Teams (MCTs) are established to ensure local government ownership and relevance of the activities undertaken by GNWP. A National Coordinating Team (NCT) ensures government ownership for the programme.
