Triple-S Ghana

Triple-S Ghana

Triple-S (Sustainable Services at Scale) was a six-year, multi-country learning initiative to improve water supply for the rural poor. The initiative was operating in Ghana and Uganda from 2009 - 2014. Lessons learned from work in countries feed up to the international level where Triple-S was promoting a re-appraisal of how development assistance to the rural water supply sector is designed and implemented.

Triple-S develops sustainability indicators for water service delivery

Sustainable Services at Scale (Triple-S) project has developed draft sustainability indicators to measure the scale of providing sustainable water services in Ghana.

Ghana: Triple-S selects three district centres for piloting SDA

Triple-S Ghana has selected three regions as centres to pilot the service delivery approach (SDA) at district level.  Each centre will be involved in the application of an action research approach where the steps for implementation of SDA for effective  sustainable water service delivery will be documented for replication in other parts of the country.

Triple-S Ghana shares baseline report of Three Districts

The Triple-S Ghana project has concluded and is sharing a report of a baseline study on the status of rural water facilities in Ghana.The report presents a synthesis of the results of a baseline assessment of the status of service levels, service providers and support functions in three districts in Ghana.

The main objective of the report is to identify strengths and gaps in the provision of sustainable water services at service provision and district levels, particularly in terms of compliance with the Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA) norms and standards for service levels, and service provider and service authority functions. A set of indicators was developed to assess and monitor sustainable service provision.
