What are the sanitation and hygiene priorities for Ghana? How are we doing on SDG-6.2 to ensure safely managed sanitation for all in Ghana? Where is progress being made, and how is this being achieved? What challenges remain? How can we accelerate efforts and reach those most in need?
This webinar brings together academics, policy actors and practitioners to discuss these questions and generate practical ideas to address priorities for progress to achieve SDG 6.2 focused in on Ghana. It is hosted by The Ghana Development Studies hub, in collaboration with the Sanitation Learning Hub and the Brown Gold project.
Reaching the targets under SDG 6.2 remains a challenge for many countries. Expansion of toilet coverage in been a marked improvement, but produced new challenges across the sanitation chain, and in terms of equity and sustainability. Further, although sanitation is considered pivotal for human wellbeing, productivity, health and to realizing the SDGs, global frameworks and agendas do not always reflect national and local realities of sanitation challenges.
