Analysis for economic transformation project

The project addresses the fundamental challenges facing Ghana’s economy; its dependence on primary production and low productivity and the development of policy reforms necessary to accelerate progress towards a more inclusive job-creating pattern of growth. The project support will contribute to ACET’s continued engagement with African stakeholders in government, business, academia, civil society, etc. on the need for economic transformation and ensure continued learning across the African countries, to the benefit of Ghana. Over the coming years some policy themes will be particularly emphasized in ACET’s policy engagement, including youth, employment and skills; regionalisation, agriculture, extractives; and gender.

Denmark’s support will also allow ACET to further strengthen its focus on Ghana by developing a specific Ghana strategy. Other Ghana-focused activities includes a project (in 2020 and 2021)  identifying and proposing policy responses to the barriers facing young women seeking skills development for enhanced employability and a collaboration with the National Development Planning Commission focused on the development of a number of thematic reports that will inform Ghana’s 40-year development framework.
