Videographer to undertake video documentary of a Project
Section 35 (6) of 1992 Constitution posits Ghana’s democracy as hinging on the popular participation of citizens “… in decision-making at every level in national life and in government”. Article 240 (2) of the Constitution also mandates local government authorities to provide avenues for citizen participation (or engagement) as a means of fostering accountability. The detail expression of these constitutional provisions is captured in the Local Government Act 2016 (Act 936). In spite of this legislation, the local governance system is faced with issues of limited participation, both in terms of sheer numbers and the depth of engagement.
As a response to the issue of limited citizen participation in local government, the Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC)in collaborationwith the UNICEF is currently implementing a project titled ‘Building the Capacity of Women and Youth as Pivots for Citizen Budget Advocacy and Execution in Local Government’. The overall goal of the Project is to build the capacity of citizen groups, particularly women and youth, to undertake budget advocacy and actively participate in local government. The project implementation period is December 2019 to October, 2020.
