Grants to this Grantee
for a project to inform citizens about the quality of public service delivery  
This project tests the hypothesis that public service delivery for the poor may be improved by increasing citizen access to socioeconomic data at the district level in Ghana. The Ghana Center for Democratic Development will collect, analyze, archive, and disseminate data on the quality of public services alongside other publicly available information on quality of life and development outcomes. Empowered with this objective and comparable information, citizens, researchers, and the media will be able to evaluate whether public officials are effectively using public resources. The Center will then measure the degree to which citizen demands for greater public official accountability result in improved service delivery.
