The project titled “Enhancing Public Participation and Demand for Accountability in Local Governance and Promoting Decent Language Campaigning for Peaceful Elections” was implemented in Ghana with funding support from the Open Society Foundation for West Africa (OSIWA). Below were the specific expected outcomes:
- Incidents of campaign-related hate speech and other indecent campaign messages during Ghana’s 2016 electioneering period are significantly reduced to mitigate potential election violence
- At least 80% of the most influential radio stations in Ghana openly disallow the use of hate speech and other inciting campaign messages on their networks.
- Increased public demand for accountability, improved responsiveness to public demands by local authorities and efficient delivery of public goods and services in the five target districts in the Upper West region.
- Improved organisational outreach, fundraising and governance.
