Developing Indicators With an Equity Lens in Ghana – Guideline
The purpose of this guideline is to serve as a tool for indicator development through an equity lens, that should be used alongside existing policies, plans and guidelines in the public sector. This guideline serves as part of a series of guidelines through the Twende Mbele partnership programme that seek to assist government decision makers to strengthen their M&E systems. This guideline is a foundational document that has been designed for Ghana’s national M&E system, but can be adapted to different country contexts and used as a platform for discussion and adoption in the national monitoring systems of other Twende Mbele’s country-level partners. Within the context of Ghana, this guideline is intended for indicator development and to assess the extent to which current monitoring frameworks are equitable, by:
• NDPC staff;
• Policy Planning Monitoring and Evaluation Divisions (PPMEDs) staff and
• District Planning Coordinating Units (DPCUs) at the local government level.
Beyond the government of Ghana, this guideline can be used by development partners who are equityfocused, and by academia as a source of training for students.
