GHANA, ACCRA

— The Accra Metropolitan Assembly has passed resolutions establishing a drain maintenance fund and a drain maintenance unit.

The fund has been included in the assembly's annual budget.

The cost of drain maintenance is estimated at $4 million USD per year, which the assembly cannot finance alone, according to project coordinator Dan Aidoo.
