The United Nations in Ghana

Akwaaba and welcome to the UN Ghana website!

The United Nations has been present in Ghana since the early 1960s, and works in partnership with the Government and people of Ghana for sustainable economic and social development, peace, and human rights.

The UN Sustainable Development Partnership (UNSDP) 2017-2022 reflects the conviction that UN work should support SDGs attainment and expresses the nature of work with the UN as a partnership rather than as a source of assistance. It is the One Programme for the UN in Ghana, setting out the collective, harmonised support of 24 UN Agencies.

These agencies draw on their individual mandates, experience and expertise to provide technical support, policy advice, and knowledge-sharing as one team. Our constituents and development partners expect this in order for the UN to be a coherent, efficient and effective development partner in Ghana.
