More partners are expected to participate in the implementation of the programme, including private partners involved in the water and sanitation sector.

Ga West Municipal Assembly was carved out of the former GA Municipality in 2004. The capital is Amasaman. It occupies an approximate land area of 284 km2 and has a projected population of nearly 300,000 people in 2014. Ga West is growing fast with some localities adjoining Accra Metropolitan Area. The Municipality is very depressed in terms of urban water supply. Rural communities depend upon access to boreholes and hand dug wells and also small scale surface water treatment facilities.Read more

Ga South Municipal Assembly is one of the MAs located within the Densu Basin covering a large land area, namely 517 km2. The municipality holds the main urban water source of Accra which is the Wieja Lake. Ga South has therefore relatively good urban water supply coverage in comparison to the other Ga’s. The projected population in 2014 is nearly 407,000 people. House-to-house collection is common practice to nearly half of the population. The disposal of waste is, just as the entire Greater Accra region, an enormous challenge.Read more
