For every child, 

The Government of Ghana  UNICEF WASH Programme (2018 –  2022) seeks to ensure that more children and their families have access to affordable and safe drinking water, supported by more efficient national strategies.

 

How can you make a difference?

Since its development in 2014 the Private Sector Participation (PSP) framework of the national HWTS strategy has only been tested on a limited scale under pilot schemes through civil society partners in the Volta, Northern and Upper East Regions.[1] Those initiatives were useful in identifying potential approaches for rolling out the framework. However, there is need for further assessment on how to effectively facilitate private sector participation in HWTS programming in Ghana, especially in the new context of the adoption of the Water Safety Plan approach.

The object of this assignment is to develop an implementation model(s) to facilitate the roll out of the PSP framework in a sustainable manner as part of the implementation of the Water Safety Plan (WSP) approach (at the household level, including schools and health facilities), as well as, the existing approach (i.e. based on the Rural Sanitation Model and Strategy (RSMS).


Specifically, the assignment aims at achieving the following objectives:

  1. Reviewing the arrangements for HWTS implementation in Ghana (including schools and health facilities), to understand the existing and potential channels and challenges to private sector participation.
  2. Identifying the solutions to the challenges identified, as well as, re-assessing the key drivers to PSP in HWTS programming in Ghana.
  3. Developing viable implementation model(s) for rolling out the HWTS PSP framework in Ghana (based on both the WSP approach and other hygiene promotion channels), for testing and adoption.

In respect of the above, the tasks for the Consultant would include the following[1]:

  • Review of the current HWTS implementation arrangements including guidance documents (National HWTS Strategy, Scale Up Model, the PSP framework, RSMS, WSP Guidance Documents and WASH PSP/ Public-Private Partnership frameworks) and previous implementation to map out the existing and potential channels for PSP.
  • Analysis of the main enablers/ drivers, as well as, challenges/ barriers and bottlenecks to PSP in HWTS and identification of measures to address the them. This would include a Market Viability analysis which would look more closely at affordability of the main categories of household treatment products and technologies (at least 2 of the most effective and readily available products/ technologies per category) among key target/ potential demographic groups. At a minimum the analysis would focus on affordability and desirability of products (key marketing mix factors). The Consultant will design the required tools/formats and assure the quality of data collection for the analysis. He/ She will also carry out the actual analysis. Data for the analysis will be collected through the appropriate government mechanisms.
  • Synthesis of the results of the above analysis into implementation model(s), which would facilitate the implementation of the roll out of the HWTS PSP framework. The model should provide practical steps for implementing the framework and should also address key context issues relating to service sustainability and equity.
  • Development of a proof of concept programme to test the model(s) on the ground, including the required regulatory, monitoring and evaluation and capacity/ system strengthening components.
  • Liaising with key Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) and other relevant stakeholders for input and feedback, using appropriate mechanisms and processes, at the key stages of all the above tasks.

Any other emerging related tasks would be included in consultation with Chief WASH and based on recommendations from other key stakeholders.

 

To qualify as an advocate for every child you will have…

  • Advanced university degree in Water and Sanitation/ Civil Engineering, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Public Health, Project Management, Sociology or any WASH/ Programme/ Emergency Management related discipline.
  • Advanced academic or professional qualification in business development/ management.
  • A minimum of 10 years experience in the WASH sector, working with government at the policy/ strategy level, in assessments, the development of policies, guidelines and frameworks and sector coordination mechanisms in different countries.
  • Evidence of specific knowledge/ qualification in HWTS programming would be an advantage.
  • Demonstrated experience to the assignment, i.e. private sector participation in WASH would be a clear advantage.
  • Have good knowledge and understanding of the WASH sector in a developing country context, such as Ghana.
  • Must be proficient in English (writing and verbal communication).
  • Demonstrable analytical ability.
