Abstract: Several of the 10 key challenges targeted by the African Water Vision 2025 are directly or indirectly related to human waste management, in particular strengthening the finan-cial base for providing adequate sanitation services. This case study describes a novel approach to improving the operation and maintenance of a waste stabilization pond system in Ghana by turning it into a dual-purpose wastewater treatment plant and com-mercial fish farm. Results of a collaborative pilot study between private, public and academic partners to test the institutional and technical feasibility of the model as well as the public health impacts are presented.
