Gov’t must reconsider its stance on prepaid water Meters
It will not address the problems of the water sector
The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) deserves to be commended for exhibiting signs of commitment towards addressing key challenges for sustainable delivery of quality and universally accessible water to urban consumers. However the recent policy indication of the company to introduce pre-paid meters to deal with some of its long standing challenges is one that needs serious re-thinking. [Lire]

Statement of the Ghana TUC on the 2008 Electoral Process to Date
As the biggest civil society organization and the most representative organization of working people in the country, the Ghana Trades Union Congress (GTUC) finds it necessary to voice out its serious concerns and reservations over developments towards the general elections in December 2008. Ghana Trades Union Congress is doing so because it believes the proper thing to do is to sound the alarm bells now and contribute to the resolution of the problems that continue to beset the political and electoral process in advance of December 2008, than to wait until we are all engulfed in crisis before seeking to play the blame game.

Menaces sur les forêts africaines - 13 février 2016 - La nouvelle frontière de la déforestation se trouve désormais en Afrique. C’est une économie complexe, reposant sur un dédale de filiales difficile à déchiffrer. Mais parfois, la longue chaîne de capitaux qui menace la forêt remonte jusqu’en France. Exemple avec le groupe Bolloré et la Socfin. - Source : Greenpeace
Le marché de dupes des producteurs de bananes d'Afrique de l'Ouest ayant exigé la signature de l'APE avec l'UE - 21 juillet 2014 - Par Jacques Berthelot - On sait que la principale raison de l’acceptation des Chefs d’Etat d’Afrique de l’Ouest de signer l’APE régional avec l’UE le 10 juillet 2014 à Accra vient des pressions exercées par la Côte d’Ivoire, et accessoirement par le Ghana, qui risquaient de perdre l’accès au marché européen sans droits de douane principalement pour leurs exportations de bananes, de respectivement 252 639 tonnes et 42 840 tonnes en 2013. Mais l’encre de la signature avait à peine séché que l’UE a signé le 17 juillet un accord de libre-échange avec l’Equateur, premier exportateur mondial de bananes, avec 5,8 millions de tonnes en 2011. - Source : Solidarité
Urban Water Management in Ghana and cycle of Wrong Policy Prescriptions - Improving on the institutional responsiveness of GWCL - 15 March 2014 - By Leonard Shang-Quartey - The failure of the urban water sector PSP experiment in Ghana through a management contract caused the water utility to be reverted back to public management; the reversion was however akin to a hot coal placed in the hands of the public water utility – Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL), as it is faced with huge possibilities of failing again so long as the fundamental issues of low investment and political interference in urban water supply in the country remain unresolved. This situation coupled with a recent policy announcement to introduce prepaid water to deal with the challenges of the sector, highlights the continues stream of policy solutions that falls short of the problems of the sector. This paper shows such disparities with examples of the AVRL management contract and the recent prepaid meter for water policy responses. - Source : Isodec
Le G8 et l’accaparement des terres en Afrique - 11 mars 2013 - Vers le milieu des années 70, la Côte d’ivoire était auto-suffisante en riz, mais sous la pression des donateurs internationaux, l’entreprise rizicole nationale a été privatisée, le soutien public à la production démantelé et le marché ouvert aux importations. Il n’aura fallu qu’une vingtaine d’années pour que les deux tiers du riz consommé dans le pays proviennent d’Asie. Ces importations ont généré d’énormes bénéfices pour la poignée de négociants internationaux en céréales et d’hommes d’affaires locaux influents qui dominent le marché. Mais elles ont eu des effets terribles sur la production locale. - Source : GRAIN
Le défi du modèle Nkrumah - 27 juin 2009 - Par Yao Graham - Kwame Nkrumah a amené le Convention People’s Party au pouvoir dans les deux ans qui ont suivi sa formation, créant ainsi le Ghana indépendant. Une victoire électorale écrasante lui a fourni une tribune pour une mobilisation anticoloniale massive dans toute l’Afrique. Accra était devenu le point de ralliement du mouvement anticolonial africain avec la All African People’s Conference qui a attiré les délégués de 62 organisations nationalistes, y compris des partis qui accéderont au pouvoir et des dirigeants post-coloniaux qui étaient vivement encouragés à lutter pour « l’indépendance maintenant ». En septembre prochain, on célébrera le centenaire de la naissance de Nkrumah. Aujourd’hui, le Ghana est devenu une icône du développement, mais les défis que son leader avait relevés n’ont pas trouvé leurs solutions. Pour son pays comme pour l’intégration africaine. - Source : Pambazuka News
Ghana : participation syndicale flouée aux « stratégies de réduction de la pauvreté » - 29 août 2008 - Par Anthony Baah - La participation des syndicats ghanéens à la définition des stratégies de réduction de la pauvreté sous l’égide du FMI et de la Banque mondiale répond au double souci d’y représenter les travailleurs et d’y imprimer leurs revendications d’équité sociale, de travail décent et de répartition des richesses. Le bilan est négatif. Floués et mal préparés, les syndicats n’ont pu y infléchir les orientations libérales du « consensus de Washington ». - Source : Cetri
US$20 Million Indece Celebrations Budget Sparks Controversy - 1er juillet 2007 - By Kwesi W Obeng - Ghanaians celebrated the country’s golden independence anniversary with pomp and pride. But that was not all. The celebration has touched off controversies of its own reminiscent of the days and months leading to the declaration of independence 50 years ago. - Source : Third Wo Africarld Network
Ghana, le modèle contesté - 3 juin 2007 - Par Yao Graham - Le 6 mars, le Ghana a fêté le cinquantième anniversaire de son indépendance en présence de douze chefs d’Etat du continent et de personnalités comme le pasteur américain Jesse Jackson. L’ancienne Côte-de-l’Or fut la première, en Afrique noire, à se libérer de la domination coloniale, sous l’impulsion de Kwame Nkrumah, figure historique des luttes anti-impérialistes. En 2007, Accra est devenu un modèle pour la Banque mondiale et un atout dans le jeu sécuritaire des Etats-Unis. - Source : Le Monde diplomatique
Reading from the script: the IMF’s PSI invades Africa - 1 February 2007 - The decisions by Ghana and Tanzania to use the Policy Support Instrument (PSI) reflect the IMF’s success in convincing countries to accept conditionality without any financing, despite the evidence from Uganda and elsewhere that PSI conditions are numerous and will be enforced. - Source : Bretton Woods Project
Risky Business: The West Africa Gas Pipeline Project - September 2005 - By Chelsea Voake - The West Africa Gas Pipeline Project (WAGP) exemplifies the reemerging trend at the World Bank of big, high-risk projects that are purported to be big solutions to poverty reduction and income generation. - Source : 50 Years Is Enough Network
