Financing Climate Resilient Infrastructure in Ghana to Safeguard Physical and Institutional Components of Ghana’s Infrastructure System

23 March 2022

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. 

 

A new report outlining Ghana’s current and future needs for climate change adaptation, co-written by UNOPS, will be launched in Accra on 24 March 2022.  The Report, “Ghana: Roadmap for Resilient and Infrastructure in a Changing Climate” provides Ghana with a resilient infrastructure roadmap to help build a sustainable, inclusive and resilient infrastructure such as power distribution lines, homes, roads and drains.
