This grant will support the establishment of a data facility center to assemble, archive, and disseminate social, economic and electoral data at the district level in Ghana. Armed with basic information on the state of public goods and services, citizens and the media will be able to assess and evaluate the degree to which public officials are fulfilling their obligations, and thus hold their representatives accountable. Over the next 18 months, CDD will identify data sources, collect and process data into accessible formats, and make data available to citizens through regular bulletins, an established website, and strategic partnerships with key media outlets.
