The National Development Planning Commission (NDPC) has organised Regional consultations on the medium-term national development policy framework 2022-2025 for Municipal and District planning coordinators and heads of decentralized departments in the Oti Region.
Mr Bright Y. Atiase, Deputy Director for National Development Planning Commission (NDPC), said the current medium-term national policy framework (MTNDPF, 2018-2021) would end this year and there was the need to prepare a new policy framework for 2022-2025.
He said the process of preparing the medium-term national development policy framework (MTNDPF, 2022-2025) started in September last year and involved the review of the performance of the implementation of the 2018-2021 MTNDPF.
Mr Atiase said a broad consultation was held with technical experts from the ministries, department and agencies (MDAs), civil society organisation (CSOs) and academia.
Participants were organised into cross-sectoral planning groups and the engagements resulted in the preparation of a draft MTNDPF 2022-2025.
He said some recommendations from a series of National Development Forum organised by NDPC to solicit public opinion on topical development issues were incorporated into the process.
Addressing the participants, he said, the draft framework was aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals(SDG), AU Agenda and ECOWAS protocols.
The objective for the regional and sub-regional consultations includes creating awareness on the development goals, objectives and priorities for the country over the next medium-term.
It is also to solicit ideas and inputs on development priorities for the next medium-term.
Mr Andrews Okumah Nawil, Oti Regional Coordinating Director, said once the policy framework was finalised, the RCC would work with all MDAs to complete their respective development plans and then the Regional Integrated plan.
He said the regional Integrated plan and the district development plans needed to be implemented comprehensively to ensure the achievement of regional and national development goals and objectives.
The participants were taken through a series of presentations for the two-day workshop by the facilitators from Accra.
