Enhancing community resilience and social cohesion amongst select border communities in northern Ghana

Duration: October 2021 – March 2023
Budget: US$300,000 (UNTFHS: $300,000)
Implementing Agencies: IOM, UNFPA

Border communities in northern Ghana are particularly vulnerable to potential infiltration and exploitation by violent extremist groups owing to their economic insecurity, including persistent multidimensional poverty and youth unemployment; health insecurity, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic; and community and personal insecurities due to lack of social services and the rule of law. 

This programme implements the human security approach to improve social cohesion, enhance resilience, and prevent violent extremism in three participating border communities in northern Ghana.
