The Ghana National Association of ADR Practitioners (GNAAP) will next month embark on an Appropriate Dispute Resolution (ADR) public outreach with the aim of sensitizing the public about the benefits of ADR.

Dubbed “GNAAP Day,” the outreach, which is slated for May 11, 2018, at the Resolution Zone at the IPLS Campus at Festus Junction, Pokuase, will host small scale business community especially commercial drivers involved in “work and pay.”

As part of the outreach programme which comes ahead of the 5th GNAAP Annual General Conference, members of GNAAP would offer free counseling, 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 amicably resolve disputes.

In addition, 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.

After the outreach event, GNAAP’s Annual General Conference, which would be attended by dozens of members of GNAAP, IPLS Alumni and representatives of stakeholder organisations, would be held at the Holy Spirit Cathedral in Accra.

The conference, which has the theme, “Alternative Dispute Resolution: a complement to quality justice delivery” would provide a platform to brainstorm for the progress of the ADR industry in Ghana.
