  • Urban Water Provision in Sub-Saharan Africa
  • Dec 10, 2009

    The One Pager, by UNDP's International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth, examines the impact of water provision on women's time allocation in rural Ghana. The document notes that while having access to water infrastructure can reduce the time burden on women, it is not implicit that the time saved would be devoted to paid activities. It calls for additional public policies to achieve that goal.
