The latest strategic policy plan on inclusive development that the Ghanaian government has implemented, is the Ghana Shared Growth and Development Agenda (GSGDA) that covered the period 2010-2013. Since 2007, new national employment strategies have been adopted that geared more towards ‘growth’ than towards poverty reduction, giving employment and youth central stage. This is reflected in the objectives of the Ghana National Employment Policies (GNEP) that cover the period 2012-2016, and the initiation of the Youth Enterprise Support Fund (YES Fund) in August 2014.
