CWSA Holds Annual Review Conference
The Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA) would hold its 2007 annual review conference from April 13 to 18 this year.
The theme for the conference is: 'Facility Ownership and Effective Operation and Maintenance: A Challenge for Sustainability.'
A statement issued by the CWSA Head office in Accra yesterday, said the objective of the conference would include defining the ownership of water and sanitation facilities, identifying the challenges of post-project monitoring of operations and maintenance.
It would highlight challenges faced by the various projects in the regions in 2007 and find measures to address them.
The statement said the conference would be attended by representatives from the Head office and regional water and sanitation teams of CWSA, Board of Directors of the CWSA, Ministries of Water Resources, Works and Housing, Local Government, Rural Development and Environment.
The government launched the National Community Water and Sanitation Programme in 1994 to address the problems of water and sanitation in rural communities and small towns.
Under this programme beneficiary communities, district assemblies, the private sector and non-governmental organisations play active roles in the planning, design, implementation and management of water supply and sanitation facilities.
The CWSA holds the annual review conference with its key partners to assess the performance of the Agency towards the achievement of the sub-sector's objectives and goals whilst the occasion is also used to evolve proposals and make recommendations for improving the rate of service delivery to achieve set targets.
