Economic Justice


NETRIGHT’s economic justice work revolves around development financing and development effectiveness, national and district development policies and plans. Others are the informal economy in particular cross border and local trade as well as market spaces. NETRIGHT’s activities are geared towards working to impact macro-economic and social policies in order to secure and enhance women’s livelihoods through policy dialogue and lobbying. Some issues NETRIGHT has worked on include gender analysis of the Ghana Poverty Reduction Strategy (GPRS 1 and 2), national and district development plans, gender budgeting, social protection, trade, economic justice capacity building programme.

Strengthening Women’s Agency for Effective Engagement in Local Governance and Development (Funded by LOGODEP and USAID)


As part of efforts to promote economic justice for women, a project was initiated in 2013 which built the capacity of women leaders and district assembly officials and members to promote gender-responsive development plans and budgets at the district level. This led to the development of gender policies by the Juaboso and Bia West District Assemblies in the Western Region as a guide to enhance their efforts in ensuring gender responsiveness in their operations including the mid-term plans and budgets for the district. In addition, existing women groups in the districts formed women’s advocacy platforms to enable them engage the district assemblies as a collective. A weekly radio program slot was secured for the Bia West Women’s Advocacy Platform to discuss critical issues of concern to women in their district.

Economic Justice and Capacity Building Program


NETRIGHT builds the capacity of women’s rights organisations (WROs) to effectively engage in and influence socio-economic policy debates from a gender perspective through our Economic Justice and Capacity Building Programme (EJCBP). The network also monitors government's responses to regional and global instruments and protocols on women’s rights and gender equality.

The network convened seminars to critically analyse and engage with the GPRS I and II. The seminars provided participants with an opportunity to be informed and make inputs into the GPRS process. Below are review papers of GPRS I and II :
