The European Union is offering euro26 million (USD36 million) to support four projects in Ghana under its 2010 action plan for the African country.

Of the amount, euro7 million will be used to back independent governance institutions engaged in the electoral process, media monitoring, civic education and human rights. Some euro9 million will help provide trade-related capacity building and quality infrastructure.

A program that supports civil society organizations and business associations will receive euro8 million, while the remaining euro2 million will be used to implement the bloc’s national indicative program for the African nation.
