EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This Annual Progress Report for 2017 constitutes the findings, observations and reactions of the monitoring and evaluation activities undertaken in the Municipal during the period under review.
Quarterly, Government and Development partners commit significant resources to support a wide range of development interventions that are designed to improve the social and economic conditions in the country. All Government agencies at the sector, Regional and District levels that are tasked with the responsibility of implementing these programmes and projects are expected to demonstrate, through evidence based information, that these interventions are having the desired effects and impact in terms of positively transforming the lives of all beneficiaries. In the context of good public sector governance, the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) tools to generate reliable and valid information to help government make sound policies and decisions in becoming increasingly relevant. The establishment of a comprehensive national monitoring and evaluation system is seen as a key to facilitating the realization of Ghana’s vision of becoming a middle-income economy.
The MTDP was established to improve the delivery of services in the Municipal. This was executed by organizing stakeholders review meetings to assess the performance of the District that deepened the understanding of how the District systems worked to promote or negate economic growth.

JMA Culture

Culture is broad and may be defined from many perspectives. It is a way of life of a group of people, which deals with customs and beliefs and social organization.

Unlike many districts of this country, Jomoro in its entirety is under one paramountcy at the traditional capital located in Beyin.

The annual festival of the people called kundum brings all the citizenry from afar and near to their respective towns and villages.
