NDPC PRE-LAUNCHES 2022 District League Table (DLT)

Monday, February 13th – Friday 17th, 2023, the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC) United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) Ghana simultaneously pre-launched the preparation of the 2022 District League Table (DLT) in all 16 regions of Ghana 
The objective is to dialogue and inform national-level actors especially Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) as well as Metropolitan, Municipal, District Assemblies (MMDAs) on selected indicators and assess disparities.
The findings from the assessment will be used to review current frameworks for policy dialogue as well as generate concrete programmatic suggestions. This workshop was also used to present to participants the outcome of the previous report (2021 DLT report) to inform decision-making at all levels.
Speaking at the occasion of disseminating the outcome of the 2021 District League Table (DLT) and pre-launch the preparation of the 2022 DLT, the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Mr. Henry Quartey called on duty bearers and decision-makers to see the DLT as a call to action and accelerate efforts in serving citizens.
“We should also consider the results as a call to redirect our resources and investments into areas that we are not doing too well while maintaining and or improving in areas that have seen some progress”, he emphasised. 
According to the Minister, this task compliments the duty bearers and decision-maker’s goal to improve the welfare of the citizenry.
Mr Quartey expressed hope that stakeholders of the DLT would continue to see the fruit of their investments reflected in changes in the rankings and scores across all sectors. 
Delivering a speech on behalf of the UNICEF Mr. Bright Atiase a Deputy Director, NDPC mentioned the partnership between UNICEF and the NDPC, and the Centre for Social Policy Studies (CSPS), University of Ghana, Legon has yielded positive results.
“I am proud to say that this partnership has enhanced not only the ownership, reliability and acceptance of the DLT but has also opened up further opportunities for its use for other impact assessments and resource allocation frameworks of Government”, he added
Mr. Atiase admonished MMDAs to use the DLT to enhance social accountability and citizen participation in decision-making and monitoring of development investment at the local level through townhall meetings with citizens and during District Assembly members meetings.
He noted that the DLT over the years helped government prioritize or target low-ranking districts, as well as the weak sectors and indicators, during resource allocation processes at the national level.
“This year, in partnership with NDPC and the CSPS, Legon, intends to continue deepening engagements with other levels of government, including the Administrator of the District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF) and Members of Parliament to streamline resource allocations”, Mr. Atiase disclosed.
He pledged that UNICEF will continue to support the government and people of Ghana, towards the achievement of the SDGs, to meet the objectives of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and to enhance the overall development of the country.
The District League Table (DLT) is a tool developed in 2014 for tracking national development and highlighting Districts that are performing well and those which are handicapped in terms of well-being of their population. 
The DLT ranks Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies (MMDAs) on selected sector-based indicators in order to highlight the performance of the districts.
