Mainstreaming adaptation into Ghana’s national development plans

SEI assisted Ghana’s Environmental Protection Authority and the its climate change focal point to develop a plan for climate change adaptation and mitigation.

The plan seeks to strengthen Ghana’s Poverty Reduction Strategy by incorporating consideration of climate change impacts. SEI provided training on planning techniques, including a novel approach to multi-sector planning that was developed by SEI and Ghana EPA staff.

The approach has been written up and published in a peer-reviewed journal by Eric Kemp-Benedict and William Kojo Agyemang-Bonsu “The Akropong approach to multi-sector project planning”, Futures 40 (2008), pp. 834-840.
