Le samedi 30 juillet dernier, la place de l’indépendance de la ville de Korhogo qui jouxte la résidence du préfet, la Mairie et le Palais de Justice, était noire de monde.
La ville accueillait la 30e édition de la Journée mondiale de la population (JMP) sur le thème national : «in­vestir dans les adolescentes pour l’atteinte du dividende démogra­phique». Pour ce faire, elle avait re­vêtu ses plus beaux apparats et fait peau neuve pour entendre Mme Nialé Kaba, Ministre du Plan et du Développement.

In this brochure, we share some of our recent experiences, for the consideration of others who wish to promote the ambitious integration framework of the Sustainable Development Goals and the aspirations of Agenda 2063 through broad-based multi-stakeholder partnerships to support country-led and country-owned initiatives across many sectors. By walking the talk, our actions have sought to address the pressing need for implementation capacity development and have strengthened local institutions to handle their own issues in their own way and to leverage their own local experts, leaders and communities. Pursuit of the demographic dividend is a powerful pathway to realizing the future we want for Africa.
 
One of the ways UNFPA is taking action to help accelerate planning and targeted investments leading to the demographic dividend is by working with the Centre for Economics and Applied Finance Research at the University of Thiés (CREFAT) to advance the National Transfer Accounts methodology across West and Central Africa. This is an analytical method that informs planning and policies by focusing on the influence of population growth and changing age structure on economic growth, gender and generational equity, public finances, and other important features of a country’s economy.

Readers of this issue of the UNFPA-Ghana Newsletter will find that the stories and articles therein reinforce the point that in the context of the SDGs, advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRH&R) can no longer be done in the business-as-usual mode.
They highlight ongoing efforts with our partners to do things differently and to bring some innovation even to the ostensibly tried and tested approaches like policy dialogue, capacity building, agenda setting conferences and workshops, and action-oriented stakeholder engagement.
