The Presidential Candidate of the CPP, Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom says when elected President, the first 100 days of his government will focus on issues of climate change as well as sanitation.

Dr. Nduom stated this at a Presidential debate on environment and climate change at the Fourth Annual Environmental Film Festival in Accra.
- "Pulling" way from Open Defecation via Aspirational Marketing - by: denniskl December 18, 2014I have been observing the forums on SuSana and other sites about the problems of OD and sanitation and toilets etc. I have read the Compendium on Sanitation Systems and technologies, and I have done several online courses on sanitation and systems.
