Financing direct support in Ghana – a video account
Updated - Wednesday 31 October 2012
Financing direct support for water facilities in Ghana is a critical element in the equation for the delivery of sustainable water services.
The question of who pays for ,the cost of operations and maintenance of water facilities for communities; the expansion of existing facilities when the need arise ; and the cost of replacing any major parts of the facility in case of a breakdown needs to be answered.
How these questions on direct support financing are addressed will impact the sustainability of water systems in Ghana.
“Financing Post-Construction Support (direct support) ”, is a video documentary which explores various options and opportunities for post construction support for water and sanitation facilities in Ghana. It draws largely on efforts by two of IRC Ghana’s programmes, the Triple-S and WASHCost projects in facilitating sector dialogue and innovations to addresses the situation.
This video was produced in collaboration with the Ghana Watsan Journalists Network
