Ghana’s African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) Country Self-Assessment report in June 2005, identified inadequate consultations with local stakeholders in district level planning, budgeting, implementation and monitoring of policies and programmes at the local level as a major shortcoming in the attainment of good governance.

As a result, the concept of the District APRM Oversight Committees (DOCs) was mooted in 2008. The members of the DOCs are drawn from local level civil society, private sector, identifiable groups, vulnerable groups and public sector actors who reside in the district. They serve as the decentralized arm of the Governing Council that operates on a voluntary basis to sensitize and educate the populace on the principles and objectives of the APRM.

Through the help of development partners; UNDP, GIZ, Hanns Seidel Foundation among others, the NAPRM annually undertakes District Governance Assessment (DGA) surveys. Since 2009, the APRM secretariat has produced 4 major reports. The reports the DOCs generate from the governance assessments serve as the rallying point for local level engagements with duty bearers.

The National African Peer Review Mechanism Governing Council (NAPRM-GC) from September 9 to October 10 this year, in partnership with the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), held five Training of Trainers workshops for its District Oversight Committees.

The participants came from 20 districts from all the 10 regions of Ghana.
The workshops formed part of a project supported by the European Union and the Hanns Seidel Foundation on the theme “Strengthening the APRM Process in Five West African countries.” After the first workshop, a core team of trained DOC members trained their peers at the subsequent four workshops where technical staff of the secretariat of the NAPRM-GC and headquarters of the NCCE acted as resource persons.
The workshops were held in Kumasi, Koforidua, Cape Coast and Tamale. The first workshop was facilitated by experts from the Institute of Local Government Studies (ILGS). Prior to the workshops, a  Training Manual for DOCs was developed to serve as a guide for the activity.
