r4d project receives attention in the Ghanaian media

During its first in-country meeting convened in Ghana last month, a variety of local news and media outlets picked up on the aims and ambitions of the CCDP project entitled “Curbing Illicit Financial Flows (IFFs) from Resource-rich Development Countries: Improving Natural Resource Governance to Finance the SDGs.”

On the margins of a workshop hosted in Accra on 8 March 2018 by the Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research (ISSER) at the University of Ghana, project partner Fred Dzanku was joined by the CCDP’s Gilles Carbonnier and Rahul Mehrotra for a series of interviews discussing some of the substantive elements of the research, particularly the issue of domestic resource mobilization to strengthen the country’s tax base.

Online versions of the resulting news articles can be found here, here and here.

The project is funded by the Swiss Programme for Research on Global Issues for Development (r4d scheme), a joint initiative of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and the Swiss National Science Foundation.
