Featuring water infrastructure, provision and access in the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area

  • As in many other cities of the Global South, in Accra and its Greater Metropolitan Area (GAMA) water provision for drinking, domestic and productive uses is coproduced by multiple provisioning and delivery modalities. This paper contributes to the overall understanding of sociospatial conditions of urban water (in)security in GAMA. By looking at the geography of infrastructure and inequalities in water access, it seeks to identify patterns of uneven access to water. The first part provides an overview of urban water supply in GAMA, focusing on water infrastructure and the perspective of water providers. In the second part, households’ access strategies are discussed by combining both quantitative and qualitative perspectives. The paper brings together literature research and empirical material collected during fieldwork in the Ghanaian capital city.
