National Technical Working Group on Sanitation (NTWGS)

Road Map and Way forward for CLTS in Ghana


Ag. Director, EHSD

Venue: Accra WASH House, Dzorwulu-Accra Date: Friday 25th March 2011

  • Ghana’s sanitation coverage of 13% is our national shame.
  • The 2% increase recorded from 2006 (11%) to 2008 (13%), our highest in recent years; implies that it will take the country forty years to reach the MDG sanitation target of 54% if we continue at this rate.
  • As a pace setter on many fronts in Africa, this is not an acceptable situation for Ghana and we need to put in drastic and radical measures to reverse this trend.
  • Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) has been identified as the approach that has demonstrated the potential to propel Ghana back on track to reach its MDG target on sanitation.
