Welcome to the Eastern Region, one of the regions with the most beautiful topographies and a major food basket in Ghana.


The Eastern Region of Ghana contains 26 districts made up of 7 municipal and 19 ordinary districts. As at May 2017, the region reported 49 ODF communities from 13 districts implementing the CLTS approach. With over 200 communities having basic characteristics of ODF, it is believed that this figure will change significantly by the end of 2018.

The state-owned Community Water and Sanitation Agency is implementing CLTS in the region. Major partners supporting the Eastern Region to eradicate open defecation include World Vision, WaterAid, Global Communities, and Plan Ghana.
