Technical Report

Ghana has made some progress towards reducing malnutrition in recent years, but it remains a key development concern and requires a multi-sectoral approach to planning, financing, and coordinating actions to tackle it. The medium-term development plans (MTDPs) of metropolitan, municipal, and district assemblies (MMDAs), which are prepared every four years, are an important entry point for ensuring that local governments prioritize interventions to improve food and nutrition security (FNS) in order to help reduce the incidence of malnutrition. As a result, USAID Advancing Nutrition Ghana provided financial and technical support to 17 municipal and district assemblies in four regions in Northern Ghana to plan for and integrate FNS into their 2022–2025 MTDPs.
