Enhancing Human Security Through Developing Local Capacity
With the aim of addressing threats to human security in Northern Ghana, and with particular reference to conflict prevention, conflict resolution and peacebuilding processes, the United Nations Joint Programme, “Enhancing Human Security through Developing Local Capacity for Holistic Community-Based Conflict Prevention in Northern Ghana (HSP)”, was initiated in 2009.
The Human Security Programme responds to the complex needs of northern Ghana by building on the strengths of a UN collaboration. UNDP (lead agency), UNICEF, WFP, FAO, UNIDO, and UNU collaborate with the Government at the national and local levels as well as with civil society organizations and communities leaders to support this comprehensive programme. The goal of the programme is to empower local institutions, communities, and individuals to manage and prevent conflict in Northern Ghana as a means to ensure sustainable human security.
