What is the public problem that the commitment will address?: Ghana is endowed with substantial natural resources (e.g. gold and petroleum). Sadly however, Ghana has not been able to unleash the development potential of its natural resources to propel economic growth and reduce extreme poverty among its people. Even though efforts are being made at transparency in the management of resources from the extractives sector, a lot more needs to be done.; What is the commitment?: The commitment will help develop the LI for (MDF) Act; finalize the LI for PRMA; and support PIAC to enforce its recommendations.; How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?: The commitment is to make public all information on the usage of resources from the extractive sector. By developing the LIs for the key extractive sector’s legal documents, the legal documents can them be operational. The commitment also provides financial and non-financial information as well as the status of implementation of petroleum revenue funded projects for citizens to know the usage of proceeds from oil sector. MMDAs will provide information to citizens on the usage of mineral royalty revenues.; Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?: The commitment will help disclose more information on the usage of resources from the extractive sector. It will also help to improve rules and regulations regarding the extractive sector to bring about transparency and accountability.
