Ghana is one of the eight pilot countries where the SDG Philanthropy Platform (SDGPP) has been catalysing innovative collaborations since July 2015. Policymakers in Ghana have emphasized the achievement of SDG 6, in particular, relating to access to safe water and sanitation, as well as ensuring sound management of freshwater ecosystems. While Ghana had already reached the MDG target of halving the proportion of people without adequate access to safe drinking water by 2015, the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) sector continued to face a number of challenges, including limited access to sanitation, intermittent supply and high water losses. New handbook and report highlights that with the renewed focus on SDG 6, philanthropy is poised to become a critical social investment partner in the water and sanitation sector in Ghana, ensuring that all development partners drive forward to rise to the challenge of achieving the SDGs.
