Improving Capacity and Community Resiliency in Ghana
The Resiliency in Northern Ghana (RING) program is an integrated project and partnership effort under USAID’s Feed the Future initiative designed to contribute to the Government of Ghana's efforts to sustainably reduce poverty and improve the nutritional status of vulnerable populations. The Urban Institute is working with Global Communities to provide ongoing support for local governments and communities to increase their capacities for collaboration, and to improve financial and food security for households.
The purpose of the RING project is to improve the livelihoods and nutritional status of vulnerable households in targeted communities of 17 districts in the Northern Region. To this end, we are supporting the Government of Ghana at the regional and district levels to create more participatory and cross-sectoral planning, and service delivery mechanisms that meet local needs.
By helping our partners cultivate a culture of excellence and high expectations through team-building and reinforcing existing country systems, were are helping local authorities to respond to communities, create supportive networks and maximize and integrate existing resources to meet community needs.
