2008 - Ghana - Country Gender Profile


The development of this Country Gender Profile (CGP) was discussed with the Government of Ghana (GoG) in 2006. Subsequently the Government request was received in March of the same year. The main goal of the CGP, which has a multi-sectoral coverage, is to present data and analysis for better informing policy formulation and program development. Its specific objectives are to (i) provide gender analyses of key sectors, policies, legal frameworks and institutions; (ii) assess progress made and challenges faced in promoting gender equality and empowerment of women in the country; (iii) present information on the various on going gender-related development interventions; and (iv) provide key recommendations for action.
