For Immediate Release

CeSIS APPOINTS NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

The Governing Board of the Centre for Social Impact Studies (CeSIS) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Robert Ali Tanti as its new Executive Director, effective 4th January 2021. This follows the resignation of Mr. Richard Ellimah as Executive Director of the organization. Mr. Ellimah is the founding Executive Director of CeSIS, and over the past 10 years has led the transformation of the organization to its present state.

Within this period he led a powerful team and fostered a community of enthusiasm and innovation, and transformed CeSIS with strengthened organizational management strategies to new heights of sustainability.
Mr. Tanti, holds a Bachelor of Education in Counselling Psychology from the University of Education, Winneba and a Master of Public Health (MPH) from the University of Ghana. He has also undertaken several training courses both home and abroad.

Mr. Ali Tanti began his career in Obuasi as a volunteer for CeSIS and several other Community based organizations before transitioning to natural resource governance, reproductive health, youth development, social inclusion, climate change, small-scale mining and human rights advocacy. As someone who has a long-standing association with CeSIS, we believe Mr. Tanti is best placed to lead the organization to the next phase of its development.

We remain committed to the same principles and services that have served mining communities over the past 10 years and have made a difference in natural resource management and advocacy for human rights, and look forward to the future with optimism.

We wish Mr. Ellimah well in his future endeavours, and congratulate Mr. Tanti on his new appointment. We pledge our unflinching support for him as he navigates the challenging task of leading this great organisation.

CeSIS, with support from the Responsible Mining Foundation (RMF), Switzerland, started a three month project to sensitize communities affected by mining operations on responsible mining practices. They were taken through the Mine Site Assessment Tool (MSAT) developed by RMF. The first community we visited was Adansi Kenya in the Adansi South district of the Ashanti Region.

PRESS STATEMENT

ADDRESS DISABILITY ISSUES HOLISTICALLY IN YOUR MANIFESTOES

The Centre for Social Impact Studies (CeSIS) notes with disappointment the failure of successive governments to fully implement key provisions in the Persons With Disability Act, 2006 (Act 715).

The Act, passed in response to concerns by persons with disability that their peculiar circumstances have not been sufficiently addressed by existing laws, policies and programmes, have wide ranging provisions to address these concerns, and more importantly, assert their constitutional rights as Ghanaians.

It is disappointing that 14 years after the passage of the Act, very little has been done to actualise this very important legislation.

Even though the act was meant to mainstream persons with disability into the national economy, and ensure they live very normal lives, this objective has unfortunately not been met. The plight of persons with disability now is worse than it was 14 years ago. Public structures continue to be inaccessible to persons with mobility impairment. Educational institutions continue to construct more than one storey structures without elevators, making access to these structures almost impossible for students with disability. We note with sadness that authorities in our tertiary institutions are especially guilty of this despicable practice. Most hospitals in the country, particularly in the districts still do not have sign language interpreters to help our brothers and sisters with hearing and speech impairment. Our public transport system does not have room for persons with disability. There is a recent case where a wheel chair bound woman was prevented from boarding a Sprinter bus because according to the driver there was no room for her wheelchair. Generally the Ghanaian economy which has been touted as one of the best in Africa, has no room for persons with disability. In other words, even in our economic miracle we have left persons with disability on the fringes.

Meeting the needs of persons with disability is not a favour the state is doing for them. It is an obligation that ought to be conscientiously met. We cannot claim to be fully developed as a country if a significant percentage of our population is left behind.

The Centre for Social Impact Studies (CeSIS), a research and advocacy organisation committed to social justice and equity, wishes to call on all political parties to commit to mainstreaming persons with disability into the wider economy by fully implementing the Persons With Disability Act. This will ensure they live in dignity as Ghanaians. As political parties put finishing touches to their various manifestoes, we wish to call on them to incorporate these concerns into the programmes they plan to implement if they win power.

CeSIS proposes that the parties move away from the tokenism that has characterised past responses to the concerns of the disability community (for instance, where one or two persons with disability employed by the state are projected as an example of the state's commitment to addressing disability issues). This time we call for a systemic shift to an era where disability issues are addressed holistically across the socioeconomic spectrum.

It is said that how well a country is developed is measured by how well it treats its population who are underprivileged. This is the same standard we will be holding our governments, both present and future.

7 mining companies dragged to court for ‘mining illegally’

Interesting that someone is finally testing the laws. The crux of the matter is, should mining companies wait for a ratification of their mining agreements before beginning operations?

Article 268 (1): "Any transaction, contract or undertaking involving the grant of a right or concession by or on behalf of any person

including the Government of Ghana, to any other person or body of persons howsoever described, for the exploitation of any mineral, water or other natural resource of Ghana made or entered into after the coming into force of this Constitution shall be subject to ratification by Parliament"

So mining companies whose agreements are yet to be ratified but are operating are doing "galamsey"?

[07/08/19]   Quick Poll: MINING IN GHANA: ARE LOCAL COMMUNITIES BETTER OFF?

Although the natural resource boom in Ghana has underpinned growth in the country’s commodity producers, it has been less successful in improving people’s welfare.
Overall, the conversion of growth into poverty reduction in Ghana is much
slower than in the rest of the developing world. This slow pace of poverty reduction is frequently attributed to economic growth that is led by natural resources, the so-
called natural resource curse. That said, it is clear that the role of mining in
economic development, and how to transform resource wealth into well-being,
will remain important issues for the economy.

Do you think that mining communities in Ghana are doing well economically and benefitting from the resource wealth?

Who Gets to Get Rich? Lessons from BP’s Senegal Payout

The case of Senegal is no different from that of Ghana. There are a countless number of corruption cases connected to the award of mining, oil & gas contracts and licenses around the world. We can identify suspicions and stop these scandals and mishaps from the onset.

resourcegovernance.org A BBC investigation has concluded that a recent oil deal in Senegal showed signs of the potential for controversy and possible corruption. As a result, a businessman dogged by ethics questions will walk away with hundreds of millions. What can we learn from this unfortunate turn of events?

Since its establishment in 2011, CeSIS has committed to providing cutting edge research results that support advocacy for the development of residents living in resource-rich areas of Ghana, and Africa at large. Our impact covers the need to influence policy change in favor of communities impacted by the operations of extractive companies.
