A three-day working session for the development of a Project Operational Manual (POM) for the Resilience in Northern Ghana (RINGII) Project has been held to create a working document that will see to the modalities and the appropriate requirements on the project in its implementation.
Participants for the working session were drawn from the various directorates and units of the Ministry of Local Government Decentralisation and Rural Development (MLGDRD) to work on the POM.
The POM, when approved by the MLGDRD and the Donor Partner (USAID) will guide the efficient and effective management of the RING II Project in conformity with the laws of the country and the policies of the United State Agency for International Development (USAID)/Ghana.
USAID/Ghana implemented the RING project, which provided grants to seventeen (17) selected Districts Assemblies in the former Northern Region. The project which was implemented between the periods of 2013 to 2019 sought to improve nutrition, sanitation, hygiene, and livelihood security in poor communities which yielded some monumental achievements.
To harness the opportunities and keep the momentum of the achievements of the RING, the Government of Ghana and USAID/Ghana have designed a successor project called Resilience in Northern Ghana (RING) II. The RING II will employ and strengthen GOG entities at the national, regional and 17 selected District Assemblies (DAs) across four regions in northern Ghana.
The RING II Project is being financed by the United State Agency for International Development (USAID) with a grant of USD 9 million over a period of five years. The goal of the RING II project is to sustain improvements in the delivery of services that promote the nutrition and resilience of vulnerable populations in northern Ghana.
