CDD-Ghana And UNICEF To Launch The District League Table (DLT)


The Ghana Center for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana) and UNICEF Ghana, in collaboration with the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, have initiated a project to develop a District League Table (DLT) which assesses and ranks all the 216 districts in Ghana in terms of their level of development and wellbeing.

The DLT will serve as a framework for assessing, comparing and ranking districts in terms of selected social and governance indicators, and using the rankings as a basis for generating engagement with service providers, district assemblies, citizenry and with national agencies, for better service delivery. The DLT will rank districts in terms of their delivery in six key sectors: health, education, sanitation, water, security and governance. As a simple ranking tool to assess the level of development in each of Ghana’s 216 districts, CDD-Ghana and UNICEF hope to use the DLT to stimulate interactions between citizens and government representatives to promote social accountability.

As the first of its kind in Ghana, the maiden DLT report will be launched on Tuesday, November 25, 2014 at 9.30am by the Hon. Minister for Local Government and Rural Development. The venue for the launch is Alisa Hotel, North Ridge, Accra.

The occasion will be graced by personalities and stakeholders from the Media, Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies, NGOs, Civil Society, and Development Partners. Find attached a pre-launch briefer on the DLT
