Ghana commits to implementing its ambitious climate actions as it launches a revision process of its Nationally Determined Contributions
The Government of Ghana, through the Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation (MESTI), has launched the revision process of Ghana's Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to strengthen the implementation of national priorities on climate change 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 of Environment, Professor Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng reiterated Government’s commitment to the revision and called on all stakeholders including the private sector, civil society organizations, relevant Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) and development partners to support the process.
“The official launch today demonstrates the political support for the NDCs revision and Ghana’s commitment under the Paris Agreement. I call on all stakeholders to therefore support this worthy course to build a prosperous and climate resilient economy to promote sustainable development for our dear nation”, noted Prof. Frimpong-Boateng.
