The Brong Ahafo Region which is made up of nineteen districts is the second largest in Ghana with a population of about two million of which 62% is rural. The rural population has little access to potable water and sanitation facilities.


The National Community Water and Sanitation Programme (NCWSP) which was launched in the country as part of government of Ghana’s restructuring of the water sector aims at increasing access to potable water in rural communities and small towns.


The NCWSP which is being facilitated by the CWSA is making great strides in the water sector in the Brong Ahafo region.


The IDA and European Union (EU) has been Brong Ahafo’s major development partner in the Water sub-sector. With the support of Community Water and Sanitation Project CWSP-1 (1994 - 1999), Community Water and Sanitation Project CWSP-II (2000 - 2005) and a third project, the Small Towns Water Supply and Sanitation Project (STWSSP), which is providing thirteen piped systems, the rural coverage has increased from 18% in 1994 to the current level of 60.5%. The current water coverage of 60.5% also includes the 556 boreholes the region collaborated with CBRDP to complete. (rolled over from CWSP 2/1) and the eleven water supply schemes funded by European Union (EU).


A new project which will be funded by AFD has been concluded and expected to take off in November, 2007. This project will provide boreholes, Small Towns Piped Systems, sanitation for Households, School and Small Towns as well as Hygiene Education.
