Ghana NCAP Project

Submitted by Sukaina Bharwani 12th October 2009 10:40

The NCAP project in Ghana was implemented over the course of three years in two separate phases. The aim of the project was to strengthen national capacity in Ghana to respond to the challenges of climate change. The ultimate objective was the formulation of climate change policies that are consistent with the Ghana Poverty Reduction Strategy, thus facilitating the mainstreaming of these policies into district as well national development plans.

Phase 1 of the project involved the development of climate scenarios that informed vulnerability and adaptation assessments. Phase 2 focused on the identification and prioritization of adaptation options and on mainstreaming these inputs into national policy making processes. The use of participatory tools with stakeholders was commonplace and promoted social learning.
