During July/August 2012 I participated in a scoping study in Ghana for AusAID and the Australia-Africa Partnerships Facility (AAPF), on behalf of Adam Smith International. The objective was to determine government and stakeholder priorities for the development and governance of the minerals sector in the country. These informed recommendations for potential AusAID support programmes.
During a short visit to the country by the small team, we met with government, private sector and non-governmental organisations and agencies. A Final Report has been produced, on the basis of which AusAID and AAPF are planning interventions.
