Governance and Economic Sustainability – Ghana

This project supports inclusive sustainable economic development and poverty reduction, with a focus on women and youth, as well as accountable governance in three mining regions: the Sahel Region in Burkina Faso, the Western Region in Ghana, and the Préfecture de Boké in Guinea. The project works with the private sector, local governments, chambers of mines and communities and aims to enable communities to maximize the socio-economic benefits from extractive industry operations. By identifying business opportunities for communities and strengthening local and national businesses, sustainable natural resource development is leveraged to the benefit of the broader economy, expanding the indirect and multiplier effects of resource extraction.
