, Assessing human security in Ghana: a developmental agency perspectiveedit
This article examines how human security is measured from a development agency perspective in Ghana. Human security is defined as “safety from chronic threats as hunger, disease, repression; protection from sudden and hurtful disruptions in the patterns of daily lives, whether in homes, jobs or communities”. Final evaluation reports of two international non-governmental organizations were used: Opportunities Industrialization Centers International, and the Adventist Development and Relief Agency. The limitations of NGO assessment of human security are examined, and recommendations offered on how to improve measurement.
