Operation & Maintenance of Handpumps in Ghana Discussion Paper


The provision of safe water requires high initial investments for the construction of the water supply systems. lt is generally assumed that countries, like Ghana would for years to come depend on external donor support to cover the initial investment cost for the development of infrastructure for rural water supply. Experience in the past has shown that these substantial investments are often endangered as the water points fall out of service after a short period of time because of lack of adequate maintenance.
