Background

During the 2016 general elections, President Akufo-Addo pledged to create three development authorities to help accelerate development.

President Akufo-Addo created the Coastal Development Authority, together with the Middle Belt and Northern Development Authorities, and tasked them to implement the Infrastructure for the Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP).

The development authorities were passed into law in November 2017.
