Facing the challenge

Ghana’s sanitation coverage stands at 15%. Sanitation has been structurally underfunded and less prioritised. To put sanitation on the agenda and encourage local politicians to prioritise and invest in sanitation, the Sanitation Challenge for Ghana was launched.


GBP 1.43 million for the best sanitation strategies

 

awards

In 2016 Duapa Award recognised 21 Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies for their urban liquid waste management strategies. Three District Assemblies received an award of up to 75,000 GBP.  The Dignified City Award will be awarded in June 2019.
