The 2023 Ghana National Human Development Report

June 26, 2024

The 2023 Ghana Human Development Report highlights the challenges facing Ghana's workforce, including a large informal sector (75%) and high youth unemployment (65% among 15-24-year-olds). The report emphasizes the need for strategic investments in human capital and infrastructure to create sustainable job opportunities. It recommends simplifying regulations, providing targeted training, and promoting entrepreneurship to formalize the informal sector.

The report also stresses the importance of STEM/STEAM education, digital infrastructure, and efficient infrastructure in energy, transport, water, ICT, and housing. To achieve long-term development goals, the report calls for a national consensus on job creation, infrastructure investment, and educational reforms. Implementation will require collective effort from all stakeholders, including government, private sector, civil society, and individuals.
