OUR PROGRAM

The NAP Global Network worked with the Environmental Protection Agency and the Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation (MESTI) in Ghana from 2018 to 2020 to support the planning and implementation of the country’s NAP processes.

We helped the country build political support for the NAP process among decision-makers at the national and subnational levels. Our goal was to increase the integration of climate change adaptation into the country’s medium and long-term development plans. 

We also helped to strengthen the resilience of energy, water and transportation infrastructures to the impacts of climate change through the development of a sector-focused adaptation strategy and a corresponding 5 to 10-year investment plan. Finally, we worked to engage the private sector in climate adaptation initiatives by creating an engagement strategy that identified key stakeholders and recommendations on strategic alliances.
