Decentralized Poverty Monitoring

Within  the framework for monitoring and evaluating the Ghana Poverty Reduction Strategy (GPRS) set out by the National Development Planning Commission, DISCAP worked with regional and district stakeholders to design andimplement a decentralized poverty monitoring system

This system has three elements:  data collection and analysis for 20 GPRS indicators to be tracked by all districts across Ghana; analysis of district-level development and financial management capacity; support to local NGOs to facilitate citizen assessment of poverty-reduction services. A strong gender-equality analysis was applied across all elements of the decentralized M & E system. DISCAP designed and delivered training on the new system for regional and district officials.
