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.
