Ghana Climate Actions Review Process Launched

The Government of Ghana, through MESTI, has launched the revision process of Ghana’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to strengthen the implementation of national priorities on climate change adaptation and mitigation to achieve low carbon development in the country.

The revision offers a good opportunity for Ghana to raise its ambition and integrate emerging policies into climate change actions at the national level.

Speaking at the launch, the Minister for MESTI, Prof. Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng said though the implementation of the country’s 2016 NDC experienced various challenges including inadequate funding, technological barriers, and limited capacity among others, there have been significant progress and achievements. The successes, according to him, include the recent approval of $54.5million from the Green Climate Fund (GCF) to help communities in Northern Ghana adapt to climate change; and completion of 5 mini-grids in Pediatorkope, Atigagome, Wayokope, Aglakope and Kudorkope, serving about 10,000 people and providing a total of 1.7 MW of installed power capacity.
