Implementation Of Annual Action Plan

The District Assembly and its decentralized departments have been assigned the responsibility of formulating and executing development plans, programmes and strategies for the effective mobilisation of resources necessary for the overall development of the district (Section 10, Local Government Act, 1993 Act 462).

Sub-section 4 of the above also empowers the district assembly to encourage joint partnership with other persons or bodies to execute approved plans. 


Whilst the thrust of co-ordination of implementation on the whole is the responsibility of the Central Administration, sector department would be charged with the co-ordination of implementation related specifically to their sectors. Thus the Central Administration would be responsible for the co-ordination of:

  • Security
  • Decentralisation
  • Resource Mobilisation
  • Generally all projects and programmes

Sector Departments

Sector departments of Ghana Education Service, District Health Service and District Agriculture Development Unit etc would co-ordinate sector and actual implementation activities.

Funding Of Projects And Programmes

Funding for the execution of plan would be provided by the District Assembly and its Development Partners who have expressed interest or otherwise in providing funds. Whilst Government pays for salaries and wages of all staff, it is also responsible for funding road works, hospitals, electrification projects, projects in second cycle schools etc. 

The District Assembly through the Common Fund finances micro projects such as classroom blocks, Courts, Health Centres, and accommodation for workers, market structures etc.   

The Development partners (NGOs and External Support Agencies) specially finances water and sanitation projects, Capacity Building Programmes, Income Generating/ Poverty Reduction Activities etc.

Finally the communities are expected to provided counterpart funds, land, local materials and in some cases communal labour towards the implementation of some projects especially the donor driven ones.
