Incorporation of Village Level Needs into District Planning in Ghana Planning from below or Continuation of Planning for Elites?


The structures on the district level and the financial and human resources and logistical support provided by the government do not relate to the promise to bring power to the people. The decision-making structures of district planning lead to an insufficient flow of information. This in turn causes co-ordination and co-operation problems on the horizontal and vertical level.
