Welcome to UERCC
The Upper East Regional Coordinating Council was established in accordance with the constitution of the Republic of Ghana.
Prior to the changes in regional and local administration under the PNDC, Ghana had a centralized government structure in which local people and communities had little involvement in decision making. Local Government Services were poor and depended largely on funds and personnel provided by the National Government in Accra.
However, since the 31st December, 1981 revolution local government has increasingly benefited from the decentralization of government ministries and from the establishment of district assemblies in 1989.
The Upper East Regional Coordinating Council was established in line with section 111-116 of PNDCL 207 (Local Government Law, 1988) and Article 255 of the 1992 constitution of the Republic of Ghana and made responsible for harmonizing programs with national development policies and priorities, and for monitoring, implementing, and evaluating programs and projects within the region.
