Social policy and budget analysis
UNICEF Ghana works to support the Government to implement equitable policies to reduce child poverty and vulnerability through the creation, analysis and use of data to prioritise policy and expenditure for children.Budget analysis
Every year we carry out budget analyses to assess the government’s changing expenditures to reduce poverty. We provide valuable information for civil society, parliamentarians and government staff to better understand how resources are allocated and advocate for change.
Research and policy advocacy
We are also at the cutting edge of research and policy advocacy in Ghana. In 2013 we led a high-level dialogue to highlight the effect of removing fuel subsidies, analysed its impact on the poor, and achieved a more than doubling in the government’s allocation to the national cash transfer programme (LEAP) to the poorest households.
