Abidjan – The third High-Level Forum on Water and Sanitation for All is taking place from November 21 to 23, 2013, in Abidjan, organized by the Pan-African Inter-governmental Agency Water and Sanitation for Africa in cooperation with the Government of Côte d'Ivoire. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is an official forum sponsor.  The theme of this year’s forum is to promote vibrant and effective cooperation to accelerate access to hygiene, sanitation and water for all in Africa.

Ghana’s economic progress over the last 20 years has been laudable. Economic growth has averaged more than six percent each year and the country is among the few in Africa expected to meet the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) of halving the poverty rate by 2015. This growth has also enabled Ghana to achieve lower-middle-income status, though unexpectedly, following the rebasing of its GDP figures in November 2010.
