Ghana is to modify her water sector information system  to incorporate scientific and local knowledge systems in response to the country’s highly variable climate.

This will be included in  the National Water Policy which provides an opportunity for users to avoid quick fixes and focus on cross-sectoral efforts and strategies that are based on a solid understanding of the impacts of climate change on water resources.

In a message to mark World Water Day the Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources Cecilia Dapaah said illegal mining  popularly known as ‘galamsey’, and improper liquid and solid waste disposal, among others, have affected the quality of water bodies.

She added that the proportion of rivers with poor ambient water quality at the end of 2016 was 61 percent of which 15 percent was considered critical. She called on Ghanaians to stop such practices and protect the environment to improve water quality in the country.
