MetadataShow full item record
Africa has a number of challenges in terms of water and sanitation accessibility and availability. One critical concern is Africans' ability to acquire clean drinking water in both rural and urban locations. This is due to mainly rapid population growth and climate change but also regulatory issues such poor policy implementation and also the institutional set up when it comes to coordination. To that, this study was conducted to analyze the water and sanitation regulatory determinants for universal services in Burkina Faso. Using the rapid review method, the study examined the policies involved in the Water Supply and Sanitation sector, the institutional framework of the sector as well as the investments and financial allocations. Looking at the different challenges affecting the Water Supply and Sanitation sector, recommendations were made in order to improve the rate of water and sanitation services availability and accessibility in Burkina Faso.
