Eighteen indicators were used to assess the MMDAs in eight sectors – education, health, nutrition, water, sanitation, energy, governance and child protection.

Some of the key indicators are net enrollment rates at KG for boys and girls, net enrollment rates at primary for boys and girls, net enrollment rates at JHS for boys and girls, proportion of population with access to basic drinking water, and percentage of communities covered by electricity, among others.

The National Development Planning Commission (NDPC) in collaboration with the United Nations Childrens Education Fund (UNICEF) supervised the findings that were disclosed at the launched of the 2022 DLT report in Accra.

Mr David Quaye Annang, Vice Chair, National Development Planning Commission, speaking at the launch, explained that the DLT was a simple ranking tool for assessing various development in the MMDAs based on some indicators.

The DLT is to strengthen the national monitoring and evaluation system.
It is to be used to inform priorities and programmes.

Mr Annang said the DLT told the story of challenges facing the Assemblies and how they were tackling them.

Dr Nana Ato Arthur, Head of the Local Government Service, said the DLT should be used as a guide to provide evidence and basis for more equitable resource allocation and social investment to reduce disparities among MMDAs.

He emphasised the need for reliable data in the compilation of the DLT to reflect the true issues at the local level.

Mr Osama Makkawi Khogali, UNICEF Country Representative said the DLT was not only an important accountability tool but an effective instrument for monitoring and evaluating progress of Ghana’s development being spread equitably across the nation.

He said UNICEF’s interest in the DLT report concerning the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the areas of child protection, innovation, health, nutrition, water and sanitation.

“This is the only way that Ghana can strategically make progress at financing the Sustainable Development Goals,” he said.
