Potentials are latent resources in the District, which are capable of promoting development in the District when tapped and used efficiently. The Districts´ resource potentials have been categorized into natural, human, institutional and infrastructure potentials. The derived potentials within each of these categories have further been classified into levels, namely, first level and second levels, as shown in Table 2.3.
For instance, within the natural resources, irrigation potentials can be derived from the vast arable land in the District and the availability of water resources. From the institutional potential realm, the capacity for local administration and governance can be derived from the existence of traditional authority and District Assembly. Besides, a vibrant local economy can be derived from a maximum use of road, electricity, telecommunication and water infrastructure in the District.
