OUR FOCUS

Democratic governance and Peacebuilding

Strengthen institutions

The Democratic Governance programme of UNDP promotes social, economic and political inclusion of the most disadvantaged, particularly women and girls. UNDP supports the Government of Ghana to strengthen systems, institutions and mechanisms that enable local elected representatives, officials and communities to perform their functions effectively.

Our Goals

UNDP supports the Government of Ghana to ensure that accountable and responsive local government systems, locally elected representatives, officials and communities are in place in selected districts in UNDAF states. The aim is to promote equitable and sustainable achievement of the MDGs and local development goals. We also support efforts to make human development an integral component of government plans and policies. UNDP also aims to strengthen access to justice for the poor, deprived communities, traditional areas, urban and peri-urban communities through strategies and actions that address key barriers in the social, economic and political domain.

Participatory Governance
