Ghana: roadmap for resilient infrastructure in a changing climate

Ghana is expected to experience more severe climate hazards such as flooding, as well as more frequent and intense droughts as a result of climate change. This has the potential to put years of progress toward growth and development targets at risk. Building a more sustainable, inclusive and resilient infrastructure, therefore, is critical to delivering development benefits over the long term. The roadmap, co-written by UNOPS includes a strong focus on solutions that work with nature and that safeguard physical and institutional components of Ghana’s infrastructure system. This is designed to be aligned with, and to inform, Ghana’s national strategic development and policy plans.
