Cross-cutting Themes

  • Humanitarian Coordination

    There is a growing commitment to integrate humanitarian concerns across the development agenda.

  • Gender

    Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. The United Nations focused on eliminating gender discrimination and violence in every part of the world, including in Ghana.

  • Human Rights

    The United Nations is committed to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which guides the work of the entire UN system. UN Ghana supports the Government of Ghana in its efforts to ensure that all Ghanaians fully enjoy their human rights.

  • Refugees

    The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is mandated to lead and coordinate action to protect refugees, and work with the Government of Ghana to resolve refugee problems in Ghana. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees.

  • Migration

    The Government of Ghana (GoG) has developed a National Policy on Migration (adopted in 2016) and its implementation plan with the support from the IOM Development Fund (IDF). For the first time in the history of Ghana, the Government has formulated a comprehensive policy to guide the management of its internal, intra-regional and international migration flows.
