GHANA URBAN FORUM 2020
RAHE GHANA wishes to thank the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development and the Coalition for Urban Transition (CAT) for the warm invitation to participate in the Ghana Urban Forum (GAF) 2020 from January 14-15, 2020.
The two day program brought together urban development stakeholders to support the urban development policy dialogue processes, models and strategies for Ghana’s growing cities.
Day 1 of the program was dedicated to examining systems of secondary cities and their significant role as economic, administrative and logistics hubs within the national and global systems for growth and development.
Participants were drawn from academia, the non-profit space, international development, architecture, planning and the civil service from Africa, Europe and Asia.
RAHE GHANA’S major focus in this meeting was primarily on how stakeholders can collectively address the large inflow of energetic youth from the rural communities to urban areas for greener pastures, by creating economic opportunities including jobs for rural dwellers in deprived and remote communities across Ghana.
We deliberated on ways in which secondary cities can work more collaboratively on sustainable projects to improve prospects, boost productivity, lift prosperity and leverage public resources to support overall economic growth and development in Ghana.
Our focus on DAY 2 was how we can use Locally Empowered Development (LED) model to improve the sanitation of urban and peri urban areas including the Awutu Senya East Municipal.
