The year 2014 has seen numerous changes at ActionAid Ghana and the country as a whole.
Ghana’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) slowed down from an estimated 7.3% in 2013 to 4.2% in 2014 due to the gas supply instability from Nigeria, as well as a sharp fall in currency and rise in inflation of 17% in December 2014 compared to 13.5% in the previous year.
Another challenge was the issue of corruption. According to Transparency International, Ghana placed 61 out of 175 countries in the 2014 Corruption Perception Index (CPI)
Internally, ActionAid Ghana appointed a new Country Director, Sumaila Abdul-Rahman, who took office in February, 2014.
The 2014 Annual Report therefore provides comprehensive details on the various projects, programmes and interventions ActionAid Ghana enrolled in the year and also brings to an end the 5 year period for the Country Strategy Paper IV (CSP IV) which is under the theme, “Rights and Responsibilities”.
