Description

We aim to protect the earth against further degradation caused by human activities; to empower people to reduce their poverty through participatory sustainable livelihood strategies; to ensure food security for all; to overcome poverty and inequality; to preserve the earth’s ecological, cultural and ethnic diversity; to facilitate climate change resilient farming systems; and to promote sustainable resource use at the local, national and global levels. We do this through a range of activities: -- train communities to monitor the activities of forest logging companies to ensure compliance with VPA and FLEGT regulations and Ghana's forest laws -- train women and other rmarginalised and vulnerable groups in sustainable livelihood activities; we provide services to communities, such as boreholes for potable water; -- raise awareness in communities about their rights to a fair share of local resources and the benefits from those resources, especially forest resources); -- train subsistence farmers in agroforestry and organic agriculture to help them adapt their farms to climate change; -- build the capacity of communities to monitor for transparency, accountability and good governance in the activities of institutions, corporations and government; -- provide food processing and storage centres to poor rural communities to help strengthen their food security -- help communities to advocate that their rights to services (e.g. water, sanitation and health) are met by the government; -- help communities use their local resources in a more sustainable way, e.g. Lake Bosumtwe and its environment -- campaign for change towards environmentally and socially equitable development in the activities of governments, institutions, business and industries.

Implementation Schedule

We are waiting for feedback from DfID/TripleLine on the implementation schedule before we upload it online

Organisations / agencies covered

Initial publication will cover projects that use DfID funding (i.e. GPAF-IMP-073 'Improving the productivity and environmental sustainability of farming systems for 1,000 women farmers in Ghana'). This covers 18% of our funding.

Frequency of publication

Quarterly

Frequency of publication (extra comments)

None

Units of Aid

We have programme areas, and these have their own projects. The DfID activity we will be reporting on is a project. So we will publish at the lower level of activities, i.e. at the project level

Segmentation of Published Data

Our DfID project is only in Ghana, so there is no need to segment our data by country.

Data Definitions and References

We will be uploading information on our website in due course (foe-gh.org)

Field Exclusions

We are using all the fields that DfID requires us to use without any exclusions. The only fields we will not be using are those which are not relevant to NGOs.

Record Exclusions

We will not be excluding any parts of our DfID activity.

Thresholds

Expenditures will be aggregated quarterly.

Other Constraints

None

Data Quality

The published data will be verified by project staff and finally by FoE-Ghana's Director prior to publication

User Interface

We are not considering creating a new user interface on our website for our data. However, if we decide to publish more projects and we feel there is interest in our data sufficient to need a more accessible interface, we will consider this at that future time.
