Regional Peace Councils in northern Ghana address emerging threats



Regional Peace Councils in northern Ghana address emerging from Creative Associates Int’l on Vimeo.

Across northern Ghana, USAID/OTI’s Littorals Regional Initiative is building on UDAID’s longstanding relationship with Ghana’s Peace Councils to training them on emerging security threats and support their efforts to better engage religious and traditional leaders, district assemblies and community influencers on social cohesion and peacebuilding. Ghana’s National Peace Council is mandated by law to prevent, manage and resolve conflict and to build sustainable peace.

The Executive Secretary of the Northern and North East Regional Peace Councils, Rev. Father Thaddeus Kuusah, says they have reached more than 2,000 residents. Also, these engagements have renewed the Council’s relevance in the North.
