Ghana Country Assessment for Youth Development Accounts

Ghana stands out as a candidate site to include in the worldwide demonstration of Youth Development Accounts (YDAs) in three ways: (1) a well-regulated and innovative banking infrastructure that already delivers youth savings products; (2) a stable and transparent government interested in socio-economic development; (3) established partnerships with many research institutions. This brief is one of a series that CSD has prepared on candidate countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. This brief, like the others, assesses the candidate country on four criteria: institutional capacity, national political interest, research capacity, and broader macroeconomic environment.
