Sanitation and Water for All: Learning from experiences and success factors in Ghana and Liberia

The Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) initiative is a global framework for action. It was initiated in 2009 as an international partnership of national governments and development partners, including donors, multi-lateral agencies, civil society, and other development organisations.

This guidance paper on learning from experiences and success factors was developed in 2013 and based on donor visits to Ghana and Liberia in support of effective implementation of the National Planning for Results Initiative (NPRI) under the SWA partnership.

These countries represent early countries to have developed national water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) 'Compacts' between 2010 and 2011 from deep and broad national consultations.
