OSIWA Good Governance
Accountability and Responsiveness through effective participation of traditional leaders in the local Governance process was a two years project funded by OSIWA in Nanumba North and South districts in the Northern Region of Ghana. The project equipped them the right knowledge, skills and information to engage in and for active involvement in decision making, planning and programs within their communities. It also conduct accountability forum and this has made district assembly official to realize that, community members meaning of development is different from what local government officials and elected representatives means development. Because what they see as development in their communities is different from what is perceived by technocrats. So whose world view matters in the development process, the communities or the technocrats?
