Indigenous institutions and contemporary development in Ghana: Potentials and challenges

Development has been variously defined by different actors to mean different things to different people. While western economists define development in terms of economic growth and income per capita, the politician may define the same as the provision of roads, hospitals, schools and so forth. In the context of a Ghanaian community, development is usually described in terms of the well-being of the individual and the community or opportunities for improving livelihoods. Whatever the differences may be among these definitions, the underlying fact is the need for effective leadership and organizational cohesion, be it at national or community level, to be able to initiate and sustain the processes that lead to development.
