Ghana Urban Sanitation Facility
This project sought to increase access to improved sanitation to low-income communities' residents in the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area (GAMA) by providing Output based Aid (OBA) subsidies to service providers. OBA subsidies would be provided for the construction of sanitation facilities and the provision of desludging services. The subsidies would bridge the gap low-income households face when trying to install in-house sanitation facilities and stop open defecation or the use of public toilets. The project was to also leverage financial resources from micro-financing institutions and support the scale up of business models that included soft loans for the provision of sanitation facilities in low income communities (LICs) of the GAMA.
