The West African Network for Peacebuilding (WANEP) has entered into a teaming partnership with GhanaFact to enhance online credibility and integrity of the presidential and parliamentary elections in Ghana.
This will form part of WANEP’s- “Electoral Violence Monitoring, Analysis and Mitigation (EMAM) project,” that will contribute to the mitigation of electoral violence during the December 7 polls.
The democracy and governance program will culminate in the establishment and operations of an Election Situation Room (ESR) with a dispute resolution and management architecture that tracks incidents, provides analysis and guarantee preventive diplomacy with key political actors to mitigate identified threats that could mar the peaceful conduct of the elections.
GhanaFact is an initiative by FactSpace West Africa, a verified member of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) working to promote independent, non-partisan fact-checking across the sub-region.
GhanaFact is a signatory to the IFCN Code of Principles, one of the few media quality standards recognized worldwide and a member of Africa Facts, a community of fact-checkers in Africa.
Since 2019, GhanaFact has been tackling the spread of mis/disinformation across traditional and social media and promoting accuracy in public discourse.
