The United Nations States Agency for International Development (USAID), has lauded Ghana for progress made in the provision of clean water across the country.
A research conducted by the agency reveals that 15 percent of Ghana’s population have access to improved sanitation - a massive improvement since 1990!
Meanwhile, USAID is projecting a 100 percent improvement in Ghana’s sanitation issues only if it closely engages with the private sector and also raises public awareness.
Earlier in 2016, YEN reported of how Ghana was ranked second after Sudan in Africa for open defecation as a report from the United National Children’s Fund (UNICEF) claimed that 19 percent of its population ease themselves in the open.
But with the menace of illegal mining polluting Ghana’s water bodies and other natural resources, fears are that the country could be downgraded by international partners on sanitation and safety ratings.
