Among other objectives towards enhancing the practice of ADR in Ghana, the conference would provide a platform to brainstorm for the progress of the ADR industry in Ghana.

The conference would be preceded by GNAAP’s outreach event on Friday, to create public awareness about ADR.

Dubbed “GNAAP Day,” the outreach which would be held at the Resolution Zone at the Institute of Para-Legal Training and Leadership Studies (IPLS) Campus at Festus Junction, Pokuase, will host the small-scale business community especially commercial drivers involved in “work and pay.”

GNAAP to embark on ADR Outreach

As part of the outreach programme, members of GNAAP would offer free counselling, conflict resolution coaching, as well as provide the platform for people to lodge cases to be taken up by the Centre for Citizens Empowerment, for settlement.

“This will be done by all GNAAP members. Members of the public would have the opportunity to interact with our members and seek the necessary advice they desire,” said a statement signed by Mr Isaac Asare, Administrator of GNAAP.

It encouraged the public to take advantage of the association’s public engagement which also aims at helping disputants to resolve disputes amicably.

Also, the annual ADR outreach, which is to demonstrate the association’s commitment to its social responsibility, is to support a national ADR campaign to promote the increased adoption of ADR by Ghanaians as the most convenient, inexpensive, speedy and confidential mechanism for settling disputes.
