|Title||Rural Poverty Reduction in Ghana: Evidence from MiDA Intervention Zones|
As continual poverty reduction in African countries remain a global focus, the preliminary success of MiDA’s
administration of the MCA first Compact aimed at poverty reduction in Ghana has set a policy-interventional
model that could improve rural living. Using a nationally representative data, the GLSS6, this study employs
propensity score matching approach to assess the effect of MiDA intervention on rural poverty in Ghana.
The study finds that rural households in MiDA intervention zones had higher consumption expenditure
compared to their counterparts not in the MiDA intervention zones. It is therefore believed that the
administrative role of MiDA was instrumental in initiating and supervising development projects in Ghana.
