dc.description.abstract The City of Accra, to which Kaneshie Market is not an exception, has been saddled with sanitation problems making it difficult for the city authorities to do their work. The study sought to find out the attitudes and practices of stakeholders towards sanitation at the Kaneshie Market Complex. It examined existing practices of stakeholders towards improving sanitation conditions, assessed the challenges they face and strategies to improve attitudes and practices of stakeholders towards sanitation. Methodology adopted to collect data that addressed the objectives of the study was descriptive survey. The target population comprised of those who generated the waste and those who managed them. Quota was allocated to the two sub groups and convenience sampling technique was used. The major findings of the study were that most of the stakeholders at Kaneshie Market Complex lacked education on good hygiene and laws on good sanitation. The study concluded that there was the need for periodic educational programmes for stakeholders to sensitize them towards practicing good hygiene for enhancement of healthy behaviours and higher productivity. Recommendations made included the need for the Accra Metropolitan Assembly and Management of Accra Markets to collaborate with adult education institutions to develop and implement public educational programmes on attitudinal change for stakeholders. Provision of waste litter bins at vantage points at the market for waste collection and need for waste operators to seek for NGO’s interested in using the 4Rs namely; Recycling, Reduce, Reuse and Recovery to minimize and enhance waste management. en_US
