THE UPPER EAST REGION

The Upper East Region (UER) historically was part of what used to be Upper Region which was in 1983 divided into Upper East and upper West Regions. The Upper Region itself had earlier been carved out of the Northern Region.

The Upper East Region is located in the north eastern corner of Ghana, which is bordered to the north by Burkina Faso, the east by the Republic of Togo, the west by the Sissala District in Upper West and the south by West Mamprusi District in the Northern Region.  The land is relatively flat with a few hills to the east and southeast.  The total land area covers about 8,842 sq. km, which is about 2.7 percent of the total land area of the country.

The population of the Region rose from 920,089 in 2000 to 1,046,545 in 2010 which shows an increase of 13.7 percent.  The 2010 regional population figure is however lower than 4.2% of the national population. 

GWCL UER operates in Bolgatanga, Bawku and Navrongo townships and their environs. The population served is about 31% of the entire population of the region. Part of the remaining 69% is served by the Community Water Agency which is responsible for providing water in smaller communities across the country.

The regionís average production is about 7,100m3 per day and revenue generation currently stands at about GHC600,000.00 per month, with nonrevenue water at 38%.
