Ghana Compact Partners
Civil Society Organizations
The Ghana Compact will be driven by citizens and shaped by the aspirations of young people for the Ghana we want by 2050. In partnership with ACET, civil society organizations will lead community and district levels consultations to obtain citizens views on the goals and targets set forth in the technical papers. These community consultations will be organized around professional groupings or associations like women’s groups, youth groups, farmers, the GPRTU, labor unions, and grassroot associations.
