Actualizing Sustainable Development Goal in Four Local Government in Ghana

ABSTRACT

This study focused on actualizing Sustainable Development Goal 4 in Nanumba South District of Ghana. Ghana adopted the SDGs in 2015 and their implementation was launched in January, 2016. It is expected that both national and district level developmental plans are aligned to them. To achieve the research objectives, the study adopted the qualitative research approach and a case study research design to purposely interview officials of the Nanumba South District Directorate of Education and the Nanumba South District Assembly. The study discovered that Nanumba South District Directorate of Education and Nanumba South District Assembly have started to align their developmental and operational plans to achieve the SDGs in general and SDG4 in particular. It also found out that there exist both government and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) sponsored policies, programmes and interventions such as scholarships, provision of educational materials and sensitization workshops to achieve the goal. Moreover, this study identified a number of monitoring mechanisms such as supervision, monitoring teams, review meetings and institutionalized data collection and reporting systems used to track the progress of educational programmes in the District. It also further identified a number of implementation challenges such as geographical, administrative, resources and socio-cultural factors affecting the implementation of programmes to achieve the goal. Relevant strategies to facilitate a successfully achievement of the goal are recommended.
