In 2013, the work of the UNCT was significantly impacted by the opposition rejection of results emanating from the December 2012 Presidential Elections. The main opposition party took this dispute to the Supreme Court and the case was eventually concluded in August 2013 confirming once again Ghana’s democratic dividend and stability.
Deriving from UNDP’s mandate to support developing countries to eradicate poverty and achieve sustainable human development, UNDP in Ghana effectively supports the country in its efforts to consolidate peace and development. In Ghana, UNDP supports national efforts and capacity building for sustainable human development in line with Ghana’s own development strategies. The UNDP Country Programme for Ghana, which covers the period 2012-2016, is derived from the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), and is in line with Ghana Shared Growth Development Agenda.
Under the overarching goal of empowering lives and building resilient nations, UNDP in Ghana focuses on three inter-connected thematic areas: promoting inclusive growth, democratic governance and sustainable development. These are articulated in the UNDAF (2012 -2016) under the outcome areas where UNDP is the lead agency.
