➡️ Back to the IPPN group!

Join us for the next IPPN Knowledge Café, a webinar series focused on building the IPPN members’ capacity to better understand a systems perspective on policy integration and acceleration; and integrated policy solutions, including curation of tools and resources that support the design and implementation of cross-cutting policy solutions. 

About this webinar

In this Knowledge Café, policymakers from Ghana will share their experience in mainstreaming and localizing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Government of Ghana has integrated the SDGs in its national development blueprint – An Agenda for Jobs: Creating Prosperity and Equal Opportunity for All (2017-2024) – and in its National Medium-term Development Policy Framework 2022-2025 down to the SDG target and indicator levels. Furthermore, its budgets objectives were aligned with SDG targets at national and sub-national levels. Guidance from the National Development Planning Commission require sectoral ministries as well as local authorities to align their activities with the SDGs. The Ministry of Finance has developed an SDG Budgeting Manual and regularly publishes SDG Budget Reports that provide an overview of SDG investments.
