Abstract: This paper discusses the efforts to fashion a strategy for peri-urban water supply in Ghana with financial support from Agence Francaise de Developpment. It posits that the institutional weakness of the Water Directorate of the erstwhile Ministry of Water Resources, Works and Housing as the policy formulation unit for the water sector created too much space for the Ghana Water Company Limited to abort the process for the successful implementation of the pilot project and the replication of an appropriate model. The paper however sees the creation of a new Ministry for Sanitation and Water Resources as an opportunity to strengthen the Water Directorate and the eventual development of an appropriate strategy for the peri- urban areas so as to minimise the problem of the missing middle.
