The overall purpose of this document is to outline the standard procedures for implementing the GrEEn CfW initiative. It defines key processes and steps to be followed. The specific objective of the guidelines is to assist MMDAs in designing, implementing and monitoring CfW subprojects. It also details administrative and institutional structures as well as procedures for implementation.
The GrEEn Cash for Work Operational Guidelines were developed and prepared in close coordination and cooperation with the Ministry of Local Government, Decentralization and Rural Development (MLGDRD) team managing the Ghana Productive Safety Net Project; this team had previously developed the Labour Intensive Public Works Guidelines for use by district assemblies. At the request of the MLGDRD, the GrEEn Cash for Work Operational Guidelines adopted aspects of the earlier guidelines and built on their implementation experiences. This approach avoided duplication of effort and strengthened government systems, a gesture deeply appreciated by the United Nations Capital Development Fund.
