A CWSA-IRC led study on Drivers and Barriers to Coordination and Harmonization of Water Service Delivery at the District Level in Ghana has concluded that in practice, District Assemblies (DAs) are not fully exercising their mandates as development authorities, responsible for planning, implementation, coordination and monitoring of water delivery interventions within their jurisdictions. It noted that while there is some cooperation with some agencies and non-state actors, DAs often lack leadership and ownership of various aspects of the WASH agendas and that projects initiated by Central Government appear to be particularly notorious in undermining district ownership and control.
