USAID/Ghana’s Democracy, Rights, and Governance Program works to increase government accountability and transparency and reduce corruption. All activities support the inclusion of women, persons with disabilities, and other underrepresented groups in political processes.
As Ghana approaches the December 7, 2016 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections, USAID is providing more than $6.7 million in non-partisan technical assistance to civil society groups, governmental and non-governmental institutions, and independent constitutional bodies including the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC), to increase electoral accountability and to facilitate free, fair, peaceful, and inclusive elections.
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) partners with universities throughout the world. In addition to partnering with Ghanaian universities, USAID partners with a range of top U.S. universities to build local capacity, and to research solutions to development challenges in Ghana.
On behalf of the United States Agency for International Development in Ghana (USAID/Ghana), we are pleased to present our fiscal year 2015 Annual Report, which highlights some of our achievements during the period from October 2014 through September 2015.
