transparency,accountability and responsiveness in Ghana.
Most people in Ghana, especially after elections, look for ways and means to get politicians to be accountable and responsible during their term, but normally with little or no success.
STAR-Ghana has however, identified the media as an important stakeholder in achieving this by strengthening linkages and other collaborations between the media and other non-state actors for pro-poor policy development and implementation outcomes.
In an interview with Joy News, Ibrahim Tanko Amidu, Programs Manager for STAR Ghana said, besides the media call, STAR-Ghana has different projects this year which also aim at achieving transparent and accountable governance.
STAR-Ghana is a multi-donor pooled funding mechanism funded by the European Union, DANIDA, USAID and DfID, which aims to increase the influence of civil society and Parliament in the governance of public goods and service delivery. It provides project grants, technical capacity building, organizational development and knowledge brokering support to civil society organizations and Parliament.
STAR-Ghana's work is also focused around Basic Education, Health, Oil & Gas and Food Security and Agri-business development in northern Ghana.
