Ghana vows to intensify efforts to protect water resources, meet SDGs

The government of Ghana has pledged to scale up its efforts to safeguard the quality and sanctity of the country’s water resources, a crucial step towards achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Deputy Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Amidu Issahaku Chinnia, made this commitment at the opening of the Water Africa and West Africa Building and Construction Exhibition and Seminar on Wednesday.

While acknowledging the progress Ghana has made in expanding access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation services, Chinnia noted that challenges persist, including deteriorating water quality, inadequate access to safe water supply, and insufficient sanitation and hygiene services. He assured that the government is determined to address these challenges to ensure universal access to these essential services and meet the SDGs by 2030.

The exhibition, which has been held in Ghana for three decades, brings together manufacturers of equipment and materials used in the water, sanitation, and construction industries, providing a platform for innovation and collaboration to address the sector’s challenges.

By intensifying its efforts to protect and preserve water resources, Ghana aims to ensure sustainability, meet the UN’s SDGs, and provide a better future for its citizens.”
