UNIDPM—A Premium Socioeconomic Investment Network

UNIDPM/United Network for Integrated Development Planning and Management is a registered NGO in Ghana.

UNIDPM’s programmatic areas include education, governance, media, and issues associated with human settlements & the built environment.

We are also your local partners for international development programming in Ghana; for example, we served as the local programming partner for IREX’s Teachers in Global Classrooms (TGC) program in Ghana during its three-year tenure in Ghana.

UNIDPM is continually and/or currently developing programming in the areas of literacy, special education, innovative design and policy analysis for urban spaces, education research, and media coverage covering the topic of governance.

To the above ends we are pursuing and building partnerships - for example ALCS, LEAP Transmedia, and, to name a few of our programming prospects.
