Ghana WASH Window (GWW) supports public-private projects in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and integrated water management in Ghana. GWW is closed; you can no longer apply for a subsidy. You can still submit documents for ongoing projects (see project management). On this page, you will find inspiration for possible water projects.

Project management

The subsidy award determines the results the project partners need to achieve. Every year, the project's lead organisation has to report on the progress. We will pay the subsidy contribution in predetermined instalments. All payments are advance payments. Read more about reporting:

Clean water and sustainable energy in Ghana


GWW projects aim to improve:

  • Sanitation and hygiene;
  • Waste management (liquid and solid waste); and
  • Access to and consumption of safe drinking water.

GWW contributes to the following SDGs:

  • SDG 6: clean water and sanitation;
  • SDG 17: partnership for the goals.

To reach these goals, we must work together. So, GWW works in PPPs between governments, NGOs, businesses and knowledge institutes.
