The Census provides important data needed to support the implementation of the national development programmes and the SDGs. Therefore, the Census is a priority to national development programme which requires strategic partnerships to conduct successfully.
As such, I joined a meeting organised by the Ghana Statistical Service and Development Partners in preparation for Ghana’s 2021 Population and Housing Census.
For Ghana 2021 PHC, UNFPA is working closely with GSS to ensure that the Census is conducted in accordance with the UN Principles and recommendations for 2020 Census Round by providing support in various areas including development of the census document, procurement support, capacity building through targeted trainings, and the recruitment of a resident Chief Technical Advisor (CTA).
In the midst of the pandemic, we will Leave No One Behind! Because Everyone Counts!!!
