Ms. Engman made these comments at the 27th edition of the National Level Learning Alliance platform with the theme Assessing Human resource Gaps in the WASH sector in Ghana. The discussions were lead by the Department of Civil Engineering of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) on 28th June 2012 in Accra. The main objective of the meeting was to access capacity gaps from institutional structures, service delivery, among others. The chairman for the day and also acting executive secretary at the Water Resources Commission (WRC),Mr. Benjamin Ampomah said even though capacity building has been clearly outlined in so many organization and project strategies, the reality lives much to be desired hence ,the HR gaps in the sector. He was however happy that the initial step has been taken by KNUST in the assessment, hoping the outcome will go a long way in helping bridge the identified gaps. Mr. Anpomah advised participants to actively contribute into this research in all means possible to help deal with this all crucial situation affecting the sector.
The multi stakeholder platform hosted by the Resource Centre Network (RCN)Ghana brought together stakeholders and key sector actors from governmental agencies like the CWSA, EHSD,GWCL/GUWCL, private partners, media, NGOs and among others
