MFWA launches Phase Two of Local Governance Project

The Media Foundation for West Africa under its Media, Development and Democratisation Programme, will from May 2013, officially commence Phase Two of its project “Using Radio to Promote Effective, Participatory and Accountable Local Governance in Northern Ghana”.

The project, funded by IBIS-Ghana, aims at increasing citizens’ understanding of, and participation in local governance concepts and processes, increasing local government authorities’ responsiveness to questions raised by citizens around priority issues through radio and enhancing transparency and accountability at the local governance level.

Phase Two of the project follows the successful implementation of the first phase which resulted in weekly local governance programmes on all eight partner stations, demonstrable listener satisfaction of the radio platforms and increased leadership responsiveness to development needs and concerns raised by citizens on project radio stations.
