The United Nations in Ghana

Akwaaba and welcome to the UN Ghana website!

Since the early 1960s, the United Nations has firmly established its presence in Ghana, fostering dynamic collaborations with a spectrum of stakeholders, including the Government of Ghana, civil society, development partners, and the private sector. This concerted effort aims to bolster Ghana's developmental endeavors in line with its national priorities.

At the core of this engagement lies the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (2023-2025)the most important instrument for planning and implementation of UN development activities at country level. Built upon three foundational pillars - inclusive economic transformation, equitable access to social services, and sustainable peace and security - this framework outlines the UN's integrated contributions towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It underscores a resolute commitment to inclusivity, human rights, gender equality, resilience, sustainability, and enhanced accountability.

In Ghana, our collective endeavor towards the SDGs epitomizes the UN's steadfast support for the country’s journey towards self-reliance.
