Information Management Library in Ghana

Ms Ruby Sandhu-Rajon, United Nations Resident Coordinator says the United Nations (UN) is determined to establish an Information Management Library in Ghana to promote programmes and projects of UN systems.     

According to her, the Ministry of Information will collaborate with the Media to champion UN programmes in the country.     

 Ms Sandhu-Rajon disclosed this in Accra, when she called on Mr. John Tia Akologu, Minister for Information, stressing “We have recognised the incredible role of the media in reaching out to the people and therefore decided to work with them to champion our programmes, especially the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other developmental projects”.      

Ms Sandhu–Rajon commended Ghana for her efforts in achieving the MDGs by 2015.     

Mr Akologu, on his part said there is a space within the Greater Accra Regional Office of the Information Services Department (ISD), which the UN can use for its Information Management Library and praised Ms Sandhu–Rajon for her bold steps in recognizing the Ministry as a partner in development.     

He therefore praised the UN for assisting Ghana in Information Communication Technology, capacity building programmes and eradicating Guinea worm in Ghana.
