Theme: Building inclusive and resilient Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) systems to reach the unserved.
Inadequate access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services has serious implications for: health, wealth and dignity. Yet, access to WASH services is generally inadequate, mostly in developing countries (WHO/UNICEF 2020).
Even where is adequate access to WASH services, several challenges threaten the sustainability of such systems. There are also vast disparities across localities, regions, and socio-economic groups.

We aim to unite our collective efforts, harness the power of collaboration, and find lasting solutions to the most pressing issues in water and sanitation. Our coalition has been working tirelessly to bring attention to critical issues in the water, sanitation, and hygiene sector in Ghana and beyond. Our mission is to "work with citizens and relevant stakeholders to influence policies, remove barriers and promote access to safe water, improved sanitation, hygiene and livelihoods, especially for the poor and vulnerable." Over the last three decades, CONIWAS members have made tremendous contributions to WASH delivery, innovations, research, advocacy, monitoring, evaluation, and learning resulting in safe WASH delivery.
The Mole XXXIV conference on Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene is an annual convening platform that brings together state and non-state actors, including institutions and individuals onto one forum to assess and discuss issues affecting the sector.
CONIWAS would build on the unique opportunity for engaging Parliamentary Select Committee on Works and Housing to promote budgetary allocations to related sectors of WASH, Health, and Education through cross-sectoral and system strengthening approaches. CONIWAS will continuously play advocacy role with Ministry of Finance to ensure timely and adequate release of allocated funds.
