This paper presents, mainly the processes followed and a number of key outputs achieved after carrying out environmental assessment and audits in a number of towns in the Greater Accra and Central regions of Ghana. While there are efforts to address environmental sanitation problems in a number of towns, the absence of town environmental sanitation plans to address all the core components of environmental sanitation in a strategic manner undermines these efforts. The processes if followed show how town environmental sanitation planning is enhanced and how resulting plans cover the main deficits in environmental sanitation services in small, medium and large towns of Ghana.
