This short paper reports some preliminary results from an investigation of water quality and water use in the peri-urban area around Kumasi, Ghana. The issues focused on here are: (1) an assessment of the consequences of land use practices within peri-urban watersheds around Kumasi; (2) the implications of this for the downstream rural sub-catchment area; (3) development and implementation of ‘good practice’ guidelines to improve awareness and management of water resources.
Presented at the Land-Water Linkages in Rural Watersheds Electronic Workshop 18 September – 27 October 2000.
