Ghana's National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy - November 2012


Ghana’s economy is primarily composed of climate sensitive sectors of agriculture, forestry and energy. Recent observations show an increase in rainfall variability and frequency of extreme weather events. Coupled with the fact that less than 1% of all cultivated land is under irrigation, the climate change impacts on the populace of Ghana is projected to be manifold. To effectively deal with the projected impacts, the government’s strategy is to build climate resilience and sustainably manage natural resources of the country.
