WILLINGNESS TO PAY FOR SANITATION: EVIDENCE FROM HEDONIC PRICE MODEL (HPM)

  • Type:Project

(Education Project Topics & Materials)

Sanitation management issues have gained global interest due to its immense impact on health and economic development, especially within the developing regions of the world. In Ghana, despite the proactive policies implemented by the government, households still find it as a problem to have access to improved sanitation. In this research, we hypothesize that access to sanitation in residences increases housing appraisal value. The hedonic price model was applied to value the access to improved sanitation facilities based on a household survey that was conducted in Dangme west and Dangme east. It was found that households are willing to pay GHS125 monthly for access to toilet facilities in residences and GHS113 for the access to proper disposal of their waste in residences. The results gotten from this study support the need for further analysis to investigate the impact of access to proper sanitation facilities and services through housing markets.
