CCDARE in Ghana

CC DARE stakeholder consultation The CC DARE team held a joint stakeholder consultation in Ghana in April 2009, in collaboration with several other adaptation programmes (AAP, ENREG, UNDP-LDCF, BCPR/DRR) with participants from diverse ministries, NGOs as well as development partners.
List of Participants
Proposals submitted A project proposal aimed at finalizing the National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy (NCCAS) was submitted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) end April 2009. The principal objective is to draw on CC DARE support to strengthen the human, institutional and financial capacity to enable the finalization of the NCCAS and its presentation to Parliament and Cabinet.
Projects selected The project proposal "Finalisation of the National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy" submitted by the EPA was accepted for funding under the CC DARE Programme, after assessment by the CC DARE review committee. 
Current project status The project was initiated in August 2009.
Country status in brief Ghana is signatory to the UNFCCC and prepared and submitted her initial national communication in 2001. As Ghana is not a least developed country, the elaboration of a National Climate Change Strategy (NCCAS) has been initiated as an alternative to a NAPA.
