The Ministry of Local Government, Decentralization and Rural Development, and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) are developing a Project Operational Manual (POM) for the Resilience in Northern Ghana (RING) II.
The manual is expected to become a working document that would see to the modalities and the appropriate requirements of the project’s implementation.
According to the Ministry, the partnership with USAID to develop the POM would guide the efficient and effective management of the RING II Project in conformity with the laws of the country and its policies.
It noted that USAID/Ghana implemented the RING project, which provided grants to 17 selected Districts Assemblies.
The project, which was implemented between the period of 2013 to 2019, sought to improve nutrition, sanitation, hygiene, livelihood and security in poor communities which yielded some monumental achievements.
MLGDRD said the Government of Ghana and USAID/Ghana have designed a successor project called Resilience in Northern Ghana (RING) II.
The RING II would employ and strengthen government entities at the national, regional and 17 selected District Assemblies (DAs) across four regions in northern Ghana.
The Ministry stated that the RING II Project is being financed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) with a grant of USD 9 million over five years. The goal of the RING II project is to sustain improvements in the delivery of services that promote the nutrition and resilience of vulnerable populations in Northern Ghana.
