Local-level planning in Ghana

Local-level planning in Ghana

Ghana - 04 September, 2018

In 2017, Tropenbos Ghana contributed to a revised policy framework released by the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC).

The framework is intended to guide local government assemblies in developing their Medium-Term Development Plans (MTDPs). Tropenbos Ghana lobbied for the incorporation of local plans into the MTDPs and provided technical insights into national and global strategies to address natural resource management and climate resilience challenges. In consultation with the NDPC, Tropenbos Ghana developed a manual and template for integrating natural resource and ecosystem service considerations into MTDPs. TBI then trained the planning officers of local government authorities in applying the template. Local government assemblies in the Juabeso Bia landscape have already adopted participatory planning and have integrated biodiversity, climate resilience and responsible natural resource approaches into their development plans.
