USAID's Investments for Economic Development in Ghana - Dollars to Results
FY 2011 $19.5 M
FY 2012 $21.1 M
FY 2013 $27.9 M
FY 2014 $22.4 M
Ghana's rapid economic growth has taken a recent downturn. 2015 growth is forecast at below 4% due to fiscal austerity and the lingering power crisis and only a weak recovery is predicted for 2016. USAID and the Ghanaian government are working together to generate prosperity and security for both the Ghanaian and American people by increasing agricultural production, employment opportunities, and income for the poor; improving the quality of health services and education; and strengthening local government institutions.
USAID's Economic Growth program in Ghana aims to:
- Build a strong agricultural sector;
- Build a strong macroeconomic growth foundation;
- Create a strong financial sector; and
- Build necessary infrastructure.
