Launch of the Strategic Sector Cooperation (SSC) Statistics Phase II

Ghana Statistical Service (GSS), Statistics Denmark (SD), and the Danish Embassy in Ghana have announced the second phase of their strategic partnership to boost the production of official statistics and thus, promote evidence-based decision-making in Ghana. The collaboration aims to strengthen Ghana's National Statistical System by leveraging survey and administrative data efficiently while addressing existing data gaps through digitalization. Key focus areas include supporting the implementation of the System of Environmental-Economic Accounts (SEEA), contributing to Ghana's sustainable development efforts. With access to existing administrative data, GSS will be able to more efficiently and cost-friendly provide relevant statistics, so policymakers will be equipped with accurate information for effective decision-making. The partnership emphasizes accountability, empowering citizens to hold their leaders accountable and actively participate in the democratic process. Ultimately, the collaboration seeks to ensure that Ghana's progress towards a greener, more sustainable future is equitable and just for all its citizens.
