The preparation of the Annual Progress Report (APR) 2022 is a responsibility performed by the Wassa East District Assembly pursuant to the National Development Planning System Act,1994(Act 480) as well as the National Development System Regulation 201, L.I 2232 which enjoins all MMDAs to prepare Medium – Term Development Plan and submit Annual Progress Report. This APR document details the assessment of the status of implementation of the 2022 – 2025 Medium –Term Development Plan (MTDP) and the Annual Action Plan (AAP) for the 2022 operational year. The 2022 APR is the first assessment of the implementation of the Medium –
Term Development Policy Framework titled “Agenda for Jobs 2: Creating Prosperity and Equal Opportunity for All (2022 – 2025)” under the six development dimensions.
In view of the above, the APR serves as a monitoring tool for determining achievements and progress in the implementation of the national development agenda with respect to the direction of the development agenda of the District.
The report highlights the following:
- Annual Action Plan Project Implementation: As at the end of the year 2022, 93 activities out of 102 planned interventions in the AAP were executed representing 91.1%. The completion of the physical and non-physical projects in 2022 operational year was very successful at 69.6%, with a portion of 21.5% at on-going stage whiles abandoned ones (1.8%) and interventions yet to start taking 7.1%. The proportion of overall MTDP implemented in the year under review stands at 22.6% connoting 93 out of 412 interventions clearly outlined in the MTDP.
- Revenue: The total revenue accrued from all sources amounted to GHS 7,538,916.50 representing 70.6% of the projected revenue of (GHS 10, 683,729.79) for 2022. There was a sharp increase of 10.1% in IGF in 2022 as compared to 2021.
- Stakeholders Participation: A total of 2 Town Hall meetings and 38 Community engagements were done at Electoral Area levels as part of the measures to ensure the smooth realization of the District Medium –Term Development plan.
- Social Protection, Vulnerability and Gender: The District Child Protection Committee was able to handle 56 cases in the District. A total of 699 beneficiaries (498 females and 171 males) from 34 communities were captured under the LEAP programme. Again, 82 physically challenged persons received assistance.
- Agriculture: The Agricultural sector in the District chalked huge performance in the year under review where there was a sharp increase in all individual indicators against their respective targets for the year.
- Health: Nurse-to-patient ratio has improved from 1: 595 in 2021 to 1:506 in 2022 while recorded malaria case fatality ratio increased from 0.07% in 2021 to 0.09% in 2022.
- Local Economic Development: The Business Advisory Centre (BAC) assisted MSMEs to create 1,714 jobs in agriculture, industry and service sectors. A total of 618 beneficiaries (210 males and 408 females) benefitted from the activities of the BAC in accessing credit totaling GHS 780,000.00.
- Education: Enrollment in schools saw an increase in both Kindergarten and Primary levels where there is a decline at the Junior High School level. Gender parity indices for all four (4) levels of education in the District were maintained with same as completion rates except JHS level where there was a slight decline. The BECE pass rate for 2022 recorded 98.7% indicating excellent performance for a rural district like Wassa East.
- Youth Employment Agency (YEA): A total of 50 (31 males and 19 females) beneficiaries are recruited on these various modules in the Wassa East District. This has eased the unemployment situation in the District and clearly a very good step by the Government towards achieving SDG 8, Target 8.6. full and productive employment and decent work for all women and men, including young people, persons with disabilities, and equal pay for work of equal value by 2030.
The report is phased into three chapters with the first chapter on the implementation of the Medium-Term Plan and the 2022 and Annual Action Plan. The second chapter is on Monitoring and Evaluation activities and the final chapter is on key issues addressed, and recommendations.
The preparation of the Annual Progress Report is targeted at providing a vivid account of the smooth and successful implementation of programmes and projects undertaken by Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs). This report details the summation of Annual Progress Reports from all decentralized Departments and units in a given District.
The year 2022 marks the first year for the execution of the Medium -Term Development Plan
(2022-2025) of the Wassa East District Assembly, based on the ‘Agenda for Jobs 2’ policy framework which are in line with the six (6) Development Dimensions as follows:
- Economic Development
- Social Development
- Environment, Infrastructure and Human Settlements
- Governance, Corruption and Accountability
- Emergency Planning and Response
- Implementation, Coordination, Monitoring and Evaluation
- Social Development
It is worthy of mention that the preparation of Annual Progress Report remains one of the major tools used to facilitate the tracking of year by year projects / programmes implementation towards the achievement of objectives in the Assembly’s Medium -Term Development Plan (MTDP) (2022-2025).
Annual Progress Report is a review of results, outputs, outcomes and impacts of the implementation of the District Medium Term Development Plan. The Medium Term Policy Framework has six (6) goals and the District adopted all the goals to address the numerous needs and aspirations of the people. These include;
- Build a Prosperous Society
- Create Opportunities for all
- Safeguard the natural environment and ensure a resilient built environment
- Maintain a stable, united and safe society
- Mainstream emergency planning and preparedness into the District’s development
- Improve delivery of development outcomes at all levels.
- Create Opportunities for all
The Wassa District has a vision to be model prosperous agro-industrial district in Ghana known for our responsive socio-economic interventions that create special opportunities for our people and with the mission to mobilize financial, human and material resources to pursue policies, programmes and projects with honesty, diligence and commitment in order to improve the quality of life of the people in the District.
1.1 Status of implementation of District Medium Term Development Plans A number of policies, programmes and projects in the Annual Action Plan (AAP) for 2022 have been completed within the planning period. However, projects which couldn’t be executed in 2022 as a result of delay in the release of funds and other challenges have rolled over to 2023. Three criteria were used in assessing the status of implementation of the plan namely percentage of implantation, interventions abandoned and intervention yet to start. The total number of projects and programmes in the 2022 AAP is 102. Out of this 91.1 percent were implemented, 1.8percent abandoned with 7.1 percent yet to start.
The details of this has been presented in table 1.1
Table 1.1 STATUS OF IMPLEMENTATION OF 2022 AAP
|Indicators||2021 baseline||Target 2022||Actual 2022|
|a. Proportion of the annual action plans implemented by the end of the year||90.3%||100%||91.1%|
|b. Percentage completed||60.1%||100%||69.6%|
|c. Percentage on-going||30.2%||0||21.5%|
|d. Percentage of interventions abandoned||1.8%||0||1.8%|
|e. Percentage of interventions yet to start||7.9%||0||7.1%|
|2. Percentage of the overall MTDP implemented||87.5%||24.8%||22.6%|
Source; WEDA, DPCU2022
From the table above it can be deduced that the district under the year in review performed impressively well by ensuring that most of it on –going projects from 2021 were completed at (69.6%) relative to the 2021 base line of (60.1%) indicating an increase in completed projects of about 9.5%. Although the year being the starting year of a Plan, the percentage of overall MTDP implement chalked an outstanding 91%.

1.2 Purpose of Monitoring and Evaluation
The 2022 Annual Action Plan had a number of projects, policies and programmes which were earmarked for implementation within the planning period based on the Agenda for Jobs. The policy objectives with indicators as well as district specific objectives have been stated to ensure the achievement of development goals of the Agenda for Jobs 2 policy framework.
The main purpose of the Annual Progress Report, 2022 , is to assess and evaluate the performance of the Assembly, review and provide information on the impacts and achievements of the districts based on the objectives set–out in the Medium Term Development Plan (2022-2025) in relation to the policies, programmes and projects targeted for the year 2022 and to find out the challenges faced in the implementation of the programmes and the projects outlined in the Annual Action plan and the composite budget
Essentially, the objective of undertaking monitoring and evaluation in the year was;
- To assess whether the DMTDP targets for 2022 have been met and also identify achievements, constraints and failures in 2021 so that improvements can be made to achieve better outcomes in the ensuing years.
- To provide information for effective coordination of district development at the regional and district levels. It also provides the District, Sub Structures, key Stakeholders and the general public a better means for learning from past experience.
- To improve service delivery and influence allocation of resources in the District and demonstrate results as part of accountability and transparency to reinforce ownership of the District Medium Term Development Plan.
- To build capacity of the staff who are involved in the Monitoring and Evaluation process within the Wassa East District.
- To provide information for effective coordination of district development at the regional and district levels. It also provides the District, Sub Structures, key Stakeholders and the general public a better means for learning from past experience.
1.3 M&E Processes and Difficulties
A number of activities were undertaken in the preparation of the Annual Progress Report (APR) for 2022. These included
- Monitoring of development projects by the District Monitoring Team with the involvement of key stakeholders namely Assembly Members, Traditional Authorities, Opinion leaders and Community Based Organization (women and youth groups. This enabled the Team to assess projects for specification conformity, value for money and whether the outputs will help achieve the project objective (s).
- Data collection of all ongoing and completed programmes and projects from Departments of the Assembly, Agencies, NGOs and other stakeholders in the District
- Meetings with the District Planning and Coordinating Unit (DPCU) especially on the District indicators.
- Monthly inspections of projects were also carried out by the Works Department as well as ad hoc trips to project sites when there were complaints from beneficiary communities.
- Town Hall meeting organized on 4th February, 2023 with all Stakeholders on Annual Action Plan and Budget Implementation for the year 2022 as well as the discussion of other critical issues of development of the District.
`1.3.1 Problems Encountered
The preparation of the 2022 Annual Progress Report was executed in spite of some challenges.
Key among them were;
- Delay in the release of the District Assemblies’ Common Fund (DACF), coupled with unexpected deductions at source which resulted in the delay in the execution of projects because contractors have not been paid.
- Inadequate data base and untimely submission of reports by Heads of Departments of the
Assembly for harmonization by the DPCU secretariat
- Projects funded by the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFUND) have been abandoned with very little information to the District Assembly even though the statuses of these projects have been communicated to the GETFUND Secretariat.
- Non-availability of dedicated vehicle for monitoring
Different reporting cycles and formats of the decentralised department
- Monitoring and Evaluation Activities Report
This chapter outlines the monitoring and funding activities that went into the implementation process of development interventions as well as the Assembly’s effort at generating funds. A core issue of interest like fund disbursement and its associated challenges are also considered in the chapter. Update of core indicators and other poverty reduction interventions in the District are also reported on, in this chapter.
Thus, one of the principal intents of this chapter is to determine the extent to which these development variables have changed within the period.
The chapter also looks at Evaluations and participatory monitoring and evaluations done during the period under review.
- Programmes/Project status for the Year
The Project Register in Annex 1 presents the details of projects completed within the period under the Agenda for Jobs 2. It outlines specific details of each project and the sector in which it falls. It also entails the contract sum, the source(s) of funding and the name of the contractor executing the project and the address, as well as the expenditure to date on the said project. The rest are the date the project started and date of completion. There is also a column for percentage of work done and remarks on the status of implementation.
All other non-physical projects and programmes have been enumerated with their status of implementation in annex 2.
The economy of the District saw a tremendous stride in the year under review. The Business Advisory Centre (BAC) in partnership with Ghana Enterprise Agency (GEA) organized a district wide training on packaging, small business management, seller-client relationship as well as business plan development. An amount of GHS 19,050.00 was spent to ensure the realization of these programmes that benefitted 130 people (89 females and 41males) under the year in review. In addition, the BAC department developed and built the credentials of 5
LBA’s to access credit for business expansion within the District. A total of 137 beneficiaries (85 females and 52 males) were sensitized in the area of credit management and modern record keeping methods.
The Agricultural sector in the Wassa East District received a sharp increase in all of its indicators in the sense that the Assembly as its mandate to ensure the realization of the
Government’s ‘Agenda for Jobs 2’ policy offered the necessary assistance to the department. The Department was able to undertake and implement within the year under review all of its programmes. The District in its bid to modernize agriculture undertook through programmes such as vaccination of livestock, poultry and pets, training of 50 farmers on livestock/crop integration and husbandry practices, train and support 35 farmers on fish farming and aquaculture, training of Agriculture Extension Officers (AEAs) improved technologies in rice, maize, cassava and cowpea production.
The District on its mandate in enabling an efficient and effective delivery of social opportunities equally to all, ensured that educational needs, health care assistance and other human development interventions were provided, made available and accessible by the populace during the year of implementation.
With reference to health care delivery and accessibility, the District through intensive efforts to make health care delivery available and accessible by all, has commenced the construction of a Community- Based Health Planning System at Himanso for the realization of this goal. Sensitization programmes were also preached across the District on persisting health cases such as the need to attend both prenatal and antenatal clinics during pregnancy and after birth, reproductive health and family planning, communicable diseases with emphasis on Covid-19 and HIV. With this it can be boldly stated that the District is making vigorous efforts in achieving SDG 3 for the betterment of its populace.
Educationally, the District in its bid to create an enabling society with a higher rate of literacy by ensuring educational accessibility and availability by all, commenced the construction of classroom block at Kakabo and also established ICT centers in a total of twenty (20) schools.
This is to help nurture young minds and also bridge the technological gap which in turn leads to the betterment of the District at wide. Also, the District made constant efforts in the provision of teaching and learning materials for its students and teachers to help in the provision of quality education as stated by SDG4.
Towards the improvement of the general welfare and the development of its human index, the District in its fight in minimizing the impact of poverty as in accordance with SDG 1, provided support for the vulnerable through the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) intervention, trained and supported an immense number of Persons with Disability. The District in its means of protecting and respecting the rights of the socially vulnerable (with emphasis on women and children), as stated by SDG 5, ensured that sensitization programmes were undertaken throughout the District to educate populace on gender -based violence and other gender sensitive reforms.
In view of this, it can be stated that, the District is immensely putting effort to ensure an enabling environment for its populace through the creating of equal opportunities.
- Environment, Infrastructure and Human Settlement
The Wassa East District Assembly in its effort to ensure a resilient built environment and protect the natural environment during the year under review collaborated with the Environmental Health and Sanitation Unit to undertake programmes which include management of landfill sites, fumigation, Community Led Total sanitation in 16 communities. Also, sanitation improvement packages were completed with couple of clean-up exercises.
The physical planning department supported by the Assembly intensified campaign on development control on planning and building regulation, provision of street lights, collection of data on all properties and businesses in Daboase township.
The Feeder Roads Department with the efforts of the Assembly during the year under review had a smooth implementation of programmes such as reshaping of 100km roads within the district, facilitate surface dressing of roads among others.
- Governance, Corruption and Accountability
In the quest to ensure the smooth running of the Assembly, there were series of statutory and other important meetings during the period under review. These include General Assembly, Management, Executive committee, District security committee and ad hoc committee meetings. The outcomes of these meeting are very crucial in general decision making of the Assembly. The Human Resource department embarked on engagements to develop the capacity of its staff, capacity building for Assembly and Unit committee members, training on financial management and revenue mobilization.
- Emergency Planning and Response
The Assembly through Natural Disaster Management Organization in an attempt to help curb the occurrence of disasters in Wassa East District during the year under review embarked on district wide sensitization on disaster prevention and management programs, formation and training volunteer groups.
- Implementation, Coordination and Monitoring and Evaluation
As part of the District’s responsibility to improve delivery of development outcomes at all levels, the District undertook monitoring and evaluation exercises, organized town hall meetings on Plan and Budget Implementation and also a stakeholders meeting on the Preparation of Budget and fee fixing rates impost.
2.1 Update on Revenue Sources
The District Assembly received funds from various sources including;
- Government of Ghana transfers – DACF, MP’s Common Fund and Salary/Grants
- Internally Generated Funds (IGF)
- District Development Facility
- Mineral Development Fund
The table below shows the sources and amounts of fund received for 2021 Baseline as well as projections and Actuals amount received in Ghana Cedis for 2022.
Table 2.1 Update on Revenue Sources (GH¢)
|Revenue Sources||Baseline 2021||2022|
|(Unicef & Covid)||45,000.00||30,000.00||15,000.00|
|(Goods & services Dept.)||54,661.16||132,374.00||35,405.67|
Source: WEDA, DPCU2022
A careful observation of the table above points to the facts that Modernizing Agriculture in Ghana (MAG) claimed the top spot in terms of the best performing revenue item for the 2022 financial year after the Assembly received disbursements which equaled 100% of its set target from Central Government toppling over other revenue items in terms of performance. This is basically due to the agrarian nature of the Wassa East District vis-a vis the premium government places on improving agriculture in these essential areas.
Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP), a major national pro-poor policy that seeks to offer some form of financial cushioning to the poor, sick, aged and vulnerable performed relatively better during the year under review as its actual payment to beneficiaries stood at almost 98% of its annual target. As a consequence of the above, it can be however said that LEAP was the District’s best performing social intervention policy for the year 2022.
Internally Generated Fund (i.e. IGF), the mainstay of the Assembly performed creditably well during the 2022 financial year. This is indicative of the fact that the internal administration and management of the Assembly went on smoothly as expected. This is as a result of a number of excellent internal mechanisms employed by the Assembly to improve its revenue generation and mobilization. A major example of these mechanisms is the provision of training on modern methods of revenue collection, debt retrieval as well as customer relations (especially with defaulters) for the Assembly’s certified revenue commissioners. Nonetheless, Goods and Services Dept. recorded an abysmal performance during the year under review after it was able to secure only 27% of the total percentage of its set target for the year. This unfortunate situation negatively impacted output levels of the various decentralized departments and units of the Assembly. Figure 2.1: Revenue sources (DACF and IGF for 2021 and 2022)
2.1.1 Comments on Revenue Sources
a) Release of Funds
The DACF which is the major source of fund for the District is expected to be released on quarterly basis. Though has increase in quantum as indicated in Figure 2.1, the regularity of release of it has not been timely for the period under review. The schedule of the releases has negative effect on the implementation of planned development projects and programmes in the District. The Assembly has seen an increasing rate of Internally Generated Fund. This margin was orchestrated by the fact that the assembly recruited and trained more revenue collectors coupled with the increase in sensitization programmes.
Table 2.2: revenue sources (IGF)
|REVENUE ITEM||BASELINE 2021||TARGET 2022||ACTUAL 2022||% PERFORMANCE|
Source: WEDA, DPCU2022
Internally, the Assembly during the year under review distinguished itself in terms of taking the best of decisions and adopting the most effective approaches to shore up its revenue performance. The Assembly in its relentless bid to achieve financial independence (especially from Central Government) set realistic targets so as to obtain optimum revenue inflows as clearly shown in the table above.
It is worthy of note that, Property Rate and Licenses (two of the Assembly’s major revenue sources) accrued approximately 92% of the total amount budgeted for the 2022 financial year. On the other hand, rent which comprises the Assembly’s reliable internal revenue sources, performed poorly as compared to the rest of internal revenue sources itemized above. This is essentially because the Assembly does not own enough institutional and residential facilities coupled with the fact that rent amounts accrued from the existing ones are in arrears for several years or months. Also, Actuals as at December 2022 for Investment remains blank due to the fact that the Assembly did not engage in any investment activity or venture (irrespective of budgeting for same) during the year under review.
In summary, an overall revenue performance of 85% of the Assembly is fairly impressive and to a large extent worthy of mention.
b) Challenges with Regards to Generating Funds
The major challenges which affect Internally Generated Funds include the following;
- Inadequate logistics to aid effective collection
- Most of the revenue collectors are commissioned collectors who mostly do not have the technical know-how on effective revenue collection.
- The scattered natures of the settlements hinder effective revenue collection. This makes the cost of revenue collection very high.
- Unreliable data on ratable items and persons in the District. C) Efforts to Generate Funds
The Assembly recognizes the need to mobilize internal funds to support its development efforts.
To this end, the District Assembly’s revenue mobilization unit has been revised to ensure effective revenue collection, supervision as well as monitoring and weekly review meetings attended by the District Chief Executive and other Heads of department.
The District has a lot of potential to improve its IGF and has therefore embarked on data collection on all ratable items. Revenue Collectors are mandated to pay their collections promptly into the
District Assembly’s Account. Again, revenue Coordinators should be appointed in the four (4) Area Council Centers to coordinate the activities of collectors.
Billing system has been established for early printing and distribution of Property Rates.
Regular training programmes would be organized to build the capacity of the Revenue Collectors.
Other strategies include
- Revaluation of selected companies and individual properties.
- Organize quarterly forum on the District’s financial performance. Ø Quarterly target setting and performance review with collectors.
2.3 Update on Expenditure
Table 2.2 shows the various items on which funds were disbursed. These are compensation, goods and services, investment and assets.
Table 2.2 Update on Expenditure (GH¢)
|GOODS & SERVICES||2,448,893.19||4,439,516.77||3,640,040.12|
Source: WEDA, DPCU2022
From the figure above, it can be observed that;
The District over the years has been utterly disciplined towards its fiscal spending and has been constantly spending below its targeted expenditure. With reference to the year under review, it can be stated that, the District spent 77% (7,420,142.96) of targeted expenditure (9,598,412.79) for the year compared to that of the previous year (6,521,321.59). It can be observed that, the District spent a great portion of its expenditure on Goods and Services, followed by expenditure on Compensation then, Assets.
Figure 2.2 Expenditure Trend
2.3.1 Comments on Disbursements
- Inadequacy of Funds
Funds released for the District are generally inadequate due to the numerous deductions and statutory allocations made at source.
This affects the implementation of planned developmental projects, programmes and policies. In view of this, the IGF and DDF are used to complement that of the DACF in the provision of development activities.
- Utilization of Funds in Accordance with the Budget
Development Projects selected from the AAP were based on the DMTDP (2022 to 2025) from which the District’s Annual Composite Budget is subsequently derived. The implementation of projects is strictly adhered to in accordance to the budget. Thus, strict adherence to the budget is ensured.
The District is faced with the challenge of unavailability and inadequacy of funds for the implementation of planned development projects and programmes.
2.4 Update on Indicators and Targets
To enable Central Government and the donor Community to assess performance in the
Implementation of the Agenda for Jobs, Assembly’s Medium-Term Development Plans (20222025) based on Development Dimensions, strategic medium-term National Indicators have been set. Assemblies are enjoined to develop district specific indicators.
These indicators form the basis for the collection of data to monitor performance.
Table 2.3 below shows a true reflection of indicators and their corresponding figures for 2022 as against the baseline for 2021.
Table 2.3 PERFORMANCE OF CORE INDICATORS FOR DISTRICTS

Source: DPCU 2022 Economic development
The 2022 implementation year saw the local economic development status of the District moving notches higher as compared to that of the base year of 2021. This is evident in the quantum of agricultural yields (i.e. both crops and animal) recorded during the year under review, the effectiveness of modern technologies demonstrated by farmers within the district as well as the number of businesses affected by interventions made available to MSMEs through the Rural Enterprises Programme.
Agriculturally, the Wassa East District fared much better in terms of general crop production or cultivation since yields of crops whose cultivation are supported by the soils within the District saw an astronomical rise relative to the yields for the base year (2021) as well as that of the targets of 2022. Classic examples to buttress the point raised above is the actual yields of crops like rice (905.61 Mt), maize (7,432.22 Mt) and Cassava (152,174.36 Mt) as against yield targets of 897.33 Mt, 7,361.44 Mt and 150,725.08 Mt respectively as clearly shown in Table 2.3 (Performance of District Core Indicators). A major cash crop like Cocoa toppled over all other crops in terms of yields recorded within the year 2022, a phenomenon which indicates that the District is largely a cocoa growing area. It is worthy of mention that the 2022 actual yield of cocoa exceeded its target by approximately 2,588 Mt. Nonetheless, Oil Palm (another important cash crop/indicator) fell short of its target yields by approximately 1%. Also, animal production for the 2022 farming year saw quite a significant rise in all of its related indicators (i.e. Cattle, Pigs, Poultry and Sheep). More specifically, yields of indicators such as Poultry and Goats exceeded their target yields by 433 and 479 metric tonnes respectively, an impressive performance to be recorded over a limited period of (1) year.
The District during the year under review, maintained its efforts towards modernising agricultural activities through the application of many different modern technologies amongst several farmers. A total of 750 farm visits were embarked on to offer a variety of demonstration opportunities to beneficiary farmers. This initiative is therefore aimed at equipping as many farmers as possible with modern agricultural practices and technologies so as to improve their output /yields.
The Business Advisory Centre in pursuit of its mandate of creating an enabling environment for the Micro and Small-Scale Enterprises (MSMEs) to thrive within the District created and supported a total of 1,714 new jobs across the agriculture, industry and services sectors. Consequently, the District saw an upward trend in all of its local economic indicators. The 1,714 engaged individuals also benefited from initiatives like skills training, financial and logistical support. In addition, no new industries (whether public /private/both) were added. IGF growth rates also reduced by some 4.5% as compared to the annual targets. Taking all the facts cited above into consideration, it is therefore obvious that the District is on a sustained path of economic prosperity to deliver on its objective of creating jobs for its people.
Ensuring a reasonable amount of social development in any area or region is largely dependent on maintaining an effective, free, fair, a non-discriminatory and well improved status of healthcare and educational services or needs. It is therefore important to note that, every District (Wassa East District inclusive) is marked for greatness if it takes the delivery of not only accessible healthcare services but also quality education seriously.
Considering the 2022 operational year, education-related indicators of the District like Net Enrollment saw an upward trend in both the Kindergarten and Primary levels but a sharp decline at the JHS level. This situation to a large extent compromises the district’s vision to expand access to improve enrollment at the junior and senior high levels of education. The District takes a cue from this unfortunate development and has resolved to put in place measures to salvage the falling standards at the JHS levels (especially in the public institutions) and as well sensitize parents whose kids are supposed to be enrolled in schools but for some reasons are currently at home.
Whilst Gender Parity Indices for all four (4) levels of education (i.e. Kindergarten, Primary, JHS and SHS) were reasonably maintained, Completion rates for all four levels of education except the JHS level significantly exceeded their corresponding targets.
This clearly depicts that the District (irrespective of the obvious challenges) is on course towards achieving target 4.1 of the SDG 4 of ensuring free, equitable and quality education by 2030. Additionally, the BECE pass rate recorded for 2022 academic year as recently released by the West African Examinations Council is 98.7%, a performance that is worthy of commendation for a rural district like the Wassa East District.
With regards to healthcare delivery, the District has through concerted efforts made great strides by commissioning and handing-over 2 major CHPS compound facilities. These facilities have been operational since the last quarter of 2021. Also, maternal mortality ratio of the district has seen a steady decline during the 2022 implementation year with factors such as improved sensitization on attending antenatal clinics among others accounting for this. Malaria case fatality ratio of the District saw a sharp rise from 0.07 in 2021 to 0.09% in 2022, as a result of improper sanitation and self-treatment resulting in late reporting of malaria cases at the various health facilities. Again, the Assembly is making headways in the realization of the SDG Goal 3, target 3.1 of reducing the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100,000 live births by 2030.
The percentage of population with valid NHIS saw a drastic improvement in 2022 relative to the previous years. It is worthy of note that, targets for 2022 were significantly exceeded partly as a result of the digitalization of the NHIS services (i.e. renewal of eligibility of membership) and the creation of mobile centers across the length and breadth of the district. The percentage of population with sustainable access to safe drinking water sources in the district from 2018 has unfortunately dwindled from 90.4% to 86.4% in 2022 largely due to the prevalence excessive illegal mining activities in water sources resulting in their pollution. The Assembly has reached a memorandum of understanding with 4Ward Development to supply water to communities without water facilities. The assembly is seeking to achieve 100% coverage in the next couple of years.
Environment, Infrastructure and Human Settlement
The District in maintaining a well-built environment within which infrastructural development (either presently or in future) will flourish to support human settlement, is expected to ensure that it improves the performance of indicators like percentage of road network in good condition as well as that of communities covered by electricity. During the year under review, the District fell short of about 1.2% of its targets in terms of the proportion of road network in good condition but exceeded its targets by 1% in terms of the proportion of areas covered by Electricity. This therefore emphasizes the reason for the rising trend of prices of the various farm produce especially due to high cost of transportation from the farm gates to market centers.
Governance and Public Accountability
The Assembly in pursuit of its vision to create special opportunities for its people has taken pragmatic steps to significantly reduce reported cases of crime such as rape, armed robbery, murder and defilement. On a rather positive note, cases relating to the above-mentioned criminal activities were neither recorded nor reported during the year under review.
Emergency Planning and Preparedness
In ensuring that the District is well placed, prepared and better equipped to contain all forms of emergencies (be it disasters or pandemics), it makes no compromises with the effective prevention, management and control of disasters among other public health conditions (outbreaks, epidemic, pandemics etc.). Regardless of the improved emergency planning and preparedness measures of the District, a total of 16 minor disasters were recorded as against a target of 0. The District remains committed to continue to organize regular sensitization and public campaigns on disaster prevention and management in the coming year. With regards to the covid-19 response situation of the District, irrespective of the progressive nature of the COVID-19 vaccination programme coupled with the continuous adherence of the social protocols, the District recorded a total of 98 active cases as against a target of 0 for 2022. Also, a critical analysis posits a marginal reduction in the number of COVID-19 cases recorded between the base year (2021) and the 2022 implementation year.
Implementation, Coordination, Monitoring and Evaluation
Considering the subject matter above as well as the importance of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) especially in the coordination and implementation of Annual Action Plans and by extension Medium Term Development Plans, it is expected of every District to at least achieve the best possible percentage of Action Plan Implementation in order to reasonably deliver on its mandate. In the case of the Wassa East District, Action Plan Implementation saw a sharp decline of 4% in the 2022 implementation year (i.e. from 90.3% in 2021 to 86.3% in 2022). This is basically due to the delay in the release of funds coupled with deductions at source.

2.5.2 One District One Factory
The District Assembly has made strides in creating the enabling environment for investment in the District. Three companies are currently running under this initiative. They include Wassa East Quarry Limited which is into crushing of mining waste rocks into aggregate for civil construction. The quarry has partners with Golden Star Wassa Mines limited and HALSAN Resource limited. All the necessary works that needed to be done including securing of 10,000 tons of rocks per month, testing of granite and confirmation of quality, site secured as well as the application of mining license has been completed. The factory was commissioned to fully operate in December 2020 and increased expansion in production by 10% in 2022. The factory has 43 workers and sells aggregates to construction industries and individuals.
The next is a USD 20 million Plantation Socfinaf Ghana’s oil palm processing factory located in Daboase. The processing factory is in full operation. It is currently employing 205 workers at the mill with over 784 workers in the plantation.
NARUBIS rubber processing factory is another company that have registered under One District One Factory Initiative. The company was commissioned to operate in May 2021 and has been in full operation throughout 2022. The factory currently employs 157 workers at the mill and 238 workers as out growers.
2.5.3 Social Protection and Vulnerability
a) Child Welfare and protection
Social cohesion and juvenile maltreatment negatively impact the upbringing and social wellbeing of children. In view of the above, the District treats every issue that relates to the welfare, promotion and safety with all seriousness. As part of the ISS initiative programme, the District Child Protection Committee organized a day training workshop for Community Child Protection Committee (CCPC) members at Nyamebekyere for eleven (11) communities. The aim of the training was to equip committee members with the knowledge on case management and referrals as well as their roles as CCPC members to enable them work effectively and efficiently in their respective communities.
With support from Child Right International and NGO within the District, CCPC ID cards were distributed to the CCPC members from the eleven communities as a form of identity in the discharge of their duties. In all a total of fifty (50) CCPC members received the training.
During the year under review a total of fifty-six (56) cases especially on Child protection were reported and handled at the office. The breakdown is as follows:
Non Child Maintenance – 22
Family welfare – 18
Child custody – 3
Paternity – 4
Defilement – 2
Land Dispute – 2
Physical Abuse – 3
Mentally ill – 1
Person with Socio Economic vulnerability – 1
A total amount of sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty Ghana cedis (GH₵16,750.00) was paid as maintenance allowance for deserving clients and all have received their benefits.
- Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP)
The LEAP programme is operating in 34 communities. Within the year under review, payments were made to the 699 beneficiary householdsin the 34 communities in the District. These payments were for the 75th,76th ,77th ,78th ,79th and 80th Cycles throughout the District.
The table 2.8 below shows the list of communities and the number of beneficiaries.

2.5.6 Incentives for Local Economic Development
Wassa East District attaches much importance to creating conducive environment for the Medium and Small-Scale Entrepreneurs to thrive. The Business Advisory Center has been set up to assist in off-farm activities as well as building the capacities of MSMEs to generate profit and create employment opportunities. As part of the mandates of the Business Advisory Center to provide credit facilities to Small and Medium Enterprises to empower them to expand their businesses, the District through BAC was able to provide monetary assistance to a number of MSME owners. A total of 618 people constituting 210 males and 408 benefited from the activities of the BAC. Out of these 387 of them were within the age bracket of 15-25 with the remaining being 26 and above 35 years. These people were assisted to access credit totaling GH¢.780, 700.00.
During the period under review, a total of 368 persons (280 females and 88 males) comprising MSME and other business owners benefitted from the various activities of the BAC. Details of activities undertaken have been presented in table 2.10 and 2.11 respectively:

The District in making conscious efforts towards realising the SDG goal 3 of improving access and quality of health services, through its health Directorate has closely monitored and regulated the activities of a total of Thirty-One (31) health facilities (comprising 18CHP compounds, 7 Clinics, 3 health centers and 2 hospitals) to ensure that the use of best practices in the administration of medical services to its people. Also, the district’s doctor-to-patient ratio stands at 1: 24,317 whilst nurse-to-patient ratio is 1: 506. Malaria, like every year, continues to lead in terms of the cause of OPD attendance accounting for approximately 36.1% of the total OPD attendance
In addition, the District has not given up on the fight against the spread the Covid-19 pandemic. This is due to the fact that, the mass administration of the first and second doses of the 4 official vaccines (i.e. AstraZeneca, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer) under the auspices of the Ghana Health Services is progressing steadily at all major health facilities and other outlets. A quantity of 47,387doses out of an overall59,685dose received has been administered with 45,187 persons receiving only the first dose and the rest (2,200 persons) being fully vaccinated.

The District capital (Daboase) together with other nine (9) communities are serviced mainly by the Ghana Water Company which has its treatment plant at Daboase. Ot her communities rely on boreholes, hand dug wells among others. The District in an effort to improve access to potable water mechanized 6 boreholes for Aboaboso, and Beenuyie. Additional boreholes which were started in 2016 and was abandoned has been repackaged for completion. The beneficiary communities include Sodji, Okette, Brempong, Daboase SHS and Amponsaso, Ebukrom, Enyinabrim CHPS compounds. The assembly has also signed an (MOU) with Access Development a service provider in the area of water to complement the effort of the assembly in providing portable drinking water. In the year 2022, 26 boreholes were mechanized for communities and institutions with a filtration system as well as 467 household connections. The district as at the end of 2022 has 92.4 percent of water coverage. The District Water Sanitation Management Team (DWSMT) organized a 2 days’ capacity building for water and sanitation management team in thirty (27) communities in Daboase and Ateiku Area councils. The purpose was to strengthen the committees as well as raise their awareness on community ownership and maintenance of water facilities for sustainability purposes.
- Cross Cutting Issues
The District in its quest to ensure gender equality and women participation at all levels of decision making of the assembly and as well address gender related challenges in the district, through its Gender Desk Office mobilized 30 divisional queen mothers within the district on two occasions within the year to have extensive discussions on the role of women in traditional authority in the planning, strategizing, implementation and delivery of the development agenda of the district. Core amongst the reasons for holding these meetings included; the discussion of a number of pertinent issues that are critical to the development of the district as well as the formation of a recognized association of divisional queen mothers in the District. Again, they were educated on the roles of queen mothers, sexual and gender based violence.
The District in collaboration with Care International, an NGO working in the district organized a twoday training workshop on societal issues practices that hinder the inclusiveness of women and girls in decision making especially at homes, administrative and governance levels. Topical amongst the lessons learnt included the various strategies needed to help increase equal access to education to help combat early marriages, teenage pregnancy and child marriage.
- Natural Resource Management and Climate Change
The natural environment is being degraded due lumbering and logging as well as illegal mining activities thus reducing portions of the original forest to secondary and pollution of water bodies especially the Pra River. As a result, the District in collaboration with Golden star Wassa mine, a mining company in the district reclaimed lands destroyed by illegal mining at kubekro. This reclaimed land has been used for oil palm plantation for the community. The assembly is hoping to collaborate to reclaim more of such lands. Again, the forestry commission together with the assembly organize a sensitization on the activities that can affect portions of the forest for communities around the forest reserves.
The district in its effort at drawing the attention of community members on climate change and its effects undertook sensitization programmes on climate change in the Daboase and Enyinabrem Area councils within the year under review. In all 203 community members (112 males and 91 females) from the various communities within the above area councils participated. As part of laid down measures in mitigating the frequency of air and noise pollution in the District, the Assembly organized a districtwide sensitization programme on the above man-made disasters. A total of 248 participants (182 males and 102 females) benefitted from the programme from various communities which include Daboase, Ateiku, Atobiase, Akyempim and Sekyere Krobo.
- Disaster resilience and Climate Change
To manage disaster effectively, the NADMO Directorate of the district dedicated the whole of 2022 operational year to embarking on a district-wide sensitization campaign on practical measures of managing and reducing the occurrence of both human and natural disasters. The sensitization included;
- Bush fires and how to prevent them especially when burning farms
- Domestic fires and the need to ensure that electrical gadgets are in good condition and also seeking the services of qualified electricians
- Allowing the free flow of water. This education became very important because of chocked gutters in most of the major communities within the district.
- Domestic fires and the need to ensure that electrical gadgets are in good condition and also seeking the services of qualified electricians
This sensitization campaign took the form of market visits, institutional (schools, churches and workplaces) visits as well as media engagements. The campaign swept through all area council capitals (i.e. Daboase, Ateiku, Ekutuase & Enyinabirim) and several other communities in the District.
Also, the NADMO Directorate in collaboration with the district fire command embarked on a monitoring exercised to institutions, companies and fuel stations in the districts to state of their fire extinguishers. This was to ensure that institutions, companies and fuel stations are in full readiness to quench fire when they occur.
The objective of the District under this sector is to improve road conditions and networks in rural communities. The under listed roads in table 2.13 were reshaped during the period under review.

- Evaluation and Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation
Evaluation is a process that critically examines a program. It involves collecting and analyzing information about a program’s activities, characteristics, and outcomes. Its purpose is to make judgments about a program, to improve its effectiveness, and/or to inform programming decisions. The general purpose of any evaluation is always to learn from experience in order to apply the lessons learnt.
Participatory Monitoring and evaluation ensure stakeholders at various levels engaged in the development processes, share control over content and results in taking or identifying corrective actions. It ensures that all key stakeholders are directly involved in the M & E design and implementation process. The goal of participatory M & E is to identify what works, what does not work and create a feedback loop that directly connects project performance with Monitoring and Evaluation.
A technical monitoring and evaluation team constituting the District Works Engineer, District Planning Officer, District Budget Analyst and the Chairman of the Works Sub-Committee has been set up by the District Assembly. The Team embark on quarterly monitoring of all projects together with the Assembly Member and Opinion Leaders of beneficiary communities.
The Works Sub-Committee as well as the various departments such as Education, Health, Agriculture and DPCU also have their Monitoring Teams which undertake regular monitoring of all projects and programmes that fall within their respective sectors.
The District during the year under review conducted five (5) evaluations on both programmes and projects as well as two (2) participatory monitoring and evaluation in collaboration with an NGO (SCMPP) under the Ghana Social Accountability Mechanism (GSAM) project. The exercises were done with the involvement beneficiary communities at Atieku, Daboase, Essuminam, Kesewokan, Akyempim, Sekyere Hemang and Sekyere Aboaboso to deliberate on findings and come out with recommendations.
These results of the evaluation and participatory monitoring and evaluation have been presented in the tables below.

THE WAY FORWARD
This chapter underpins the key issues that have been addressed and yet to be addressed in the implementation of the MTDP. It also details the recommendations made towards the enhancement of monitoring and evaluation of programmes and projects in the District.
3.1 Key issues addressed and those yet to be addressed
3.1.1 Improvement in Communication among Actors
- Management meetings are organised every fortnight to improve effective flow of information among the Central Administration and the key Departments of the District Assembly.
- District Planning and Coordinating Unit (DPCU) meetings would be organised quarterly to review for all reports of members for the quarter and planned programmes for the next quarter.
- The issue of delay in the release of funds and the deductions from source are yet to be addressed. However, the district has made strides in improving the Internally Generated Funds.
- A number of training programmes have also been organised for staff and Assembly Members to improve efficiency.
- The District Assembly should be furnished with adequate information on projects awarded and paid for by other institutions outside the Assembly especially GETFUND to ensure effective monitoring.
- Again, for the smooth implementation of planned projects and programmes the District
Assembly would like to make a fervent appeal for the timely release of the District Assembly Common Fund.
- It is expected that training programmes and items needed by staff for Monitoring as listed in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan would be provided to enable them to do effective Monitoring and Evaluation.
