SWITCH: Managing Water for the City of the Future

Managing Water for the City of the Future

Accra – Ghana

Introduction

In Accra, SWITCH played an important role in bringing together information and people across the different municipalities in the city. As well as municipalities, the project engaged different national government departments, research institutes, the utility, representatives of peri-urban and slum communities and worked hard to promote urban water and sanitation issues and solutions with the media. Outcomes that have had significant impacts included a presidential debate in 2008 that was organized for the candidates to present their visions on water and sanitation, and a strategic planning process that led to findings being utilized within other major and more 'official' planning processes such as the development of a new World-Bank supported project and the Metropolitian Assemblies' development plan.
