The government has signed GH¢3.2 million agreement with Switzerland to build capacity and deepen decentralisation at the country’s local government level. This is to ensure a responsive, effective and efficient local governance system in the country.
The interventions, which are being piloted in 40 assemblies, will contribute to enhancing the technical and administrative capacities of local authorities. Under the agreement, the Switzerland government is supporting the Institute of Local Government Studies (ILGS) with GH¢3.2 million to build the capacity to the local government officials to enable them to effectively perform their duties and responsibilities.
The Ministry of Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development is working with the institute and other partners to complete this assignment and with the desired level of quality to ensure that the requisite lessons and insights are drawn to inform processes for a nation-wide rollout of this novelty in capacity building for the sector.
