Citizens Generated Data Platform training.
The Ketu South Municipal Assembly was selected among 30 MMDAs across the country for the Citizens Generated Data Platform (CGD) scale-up of the project on Gender-Based violence and Solid waste management. The project supervising agency, the Ghana Statistical Service with support from its donor sponsor GIZ, organized a two-day training workshop for the constituted District Technical Team (DTT) headed by the Municipal Coordinating Director.
The workshop was facilitated by the Regional Statistician, Mr. Christopher Amewu, Mr. Louis Toboh, and Madam Jane Acolatse all from the Ghana Statistical Service. They briefed the DTT on the various thematic areas of the project and identified the aim of the project as to collect data from the citizens on the thematic areas to influence policy formulation. He took members through how to install and use the “Let Talk app’ and ‘Clean APP Ghana app’.
The workshop ended with a pledge by the members of the DTT to launch the project on Wednesday, May 10, 2023, to kick-start the advocacy for the project.
