Government of Ghana Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Project (IPEP)
In an attempt to eradicate poverty, the government has instituted several initiatives under the IPEP to be implemented by three development authorities: the Northern Development Authority, the Middle-Belt Development Authority and the Coastal Development Authority.
Under the IPEP, US$1 million will be disbursed to each of the 275 constituencies across Ghana to undertake development projects at a decentralised level. The projects under consideration include the government’s flagship projects: one-district-one-factory; onevillage- one-dam and one-district-onewarehouse.
The projects are expected to stimulate economic activity in different parts of the country and drive the government’s rural industrialisation agenda.
