Ghana Progress Report 2013-2014
In January and February 2015, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) will present for public comment 8 progress reports of countries whose first official year of OGP action plan implementation began on 1 July 2013 and closed on 30 June 2014. The IRM reports cover implementation of the Action Plan for each country during this first year.
In Ghana, Nicholas Adamtey, the independent researcher who authored the report, summarized the findings:
The Ghanaian government wrote an ambition action plan. A number of commitments reflected public concerns. Some of the commitments around legislation lacked consultation and few of them were passed into law. Moving forward, the government will need to involve experienced stakeholders in each specific policy area, such as extractives organizations in the Petroleum Revenue Management Act.
