Cost of water and sanitation services in Nkwanta in the Bosomtwe District of Ashanti Region, Ghana
This report was generated from a study into the cost of water and sanitation services received by the inhabitants in Nkwanta in the Bosomtwe District of Ashanti Region, Ghana
Nkwanta community with a population of 1,050 with two formal water systems is considered to be poorly served in terms of water coverage, based on the CWSA norm of one borehole with handpump for 300 people.
Despite subsidies provided by the Government of Ghana in 2004-2006 to community members who wanted to own household toilet facilities, only 16% of the community members own household toilet. As result only 10% of the respondents have access to basic sanitation service.
