Abstract

The Ghana Poverty Reduction Strategy (GPRS) is currently Ghana's blueprint for growth, poverty reduction, and human development. It represents the framework the government of Ghana adopted to foster economic growth and fight poverty. A joint ILO/UNDP team was set up to specifically study the employment initiatives, programs, and projects that the government of Ghana is currently pursuing within the context of the GPRS. This report examines the current content of the GPRS with regard to employment; identifies challenges for realizing employment objectives; and develops recommendations for strengthening the employment content of national policies. In doing so, it outlines the elements of an employment framework for poverty-reducing growth in Ghana.
