Supporting Ghana to advance their NAP process
- The Government of Ghana has developed a long list of climate change action programs to implement over the 2015-2020 timeframe. Since there are budget constraints, the government is identifying high priority programs based on systematic and robust cost-benefit analysis (CBA).
- To support this process, a CBA Training Workshop was provided by UNDP at the request of the Government of Ghana as a part of the NAP-GSP on 28 October 2016. The aim of the training was to provide not only theoretical understanding of CBA but also practical CBA applications in climate change adaptation through presentations, discussion, and case studies to target participants some of whom could potentially become future trainers themselves.
- Ghana-focused case studies were designed according to Ghana’s priority areas and used throughout the workshop. These priority areas were identified based on the broad base consultation and consensus building.
- The workshop was led by NDPC in close collaboration with MESTI and EPA, and Ministry of Finance.
- The joint UNDP-UNEP NAP-Global Support Programme is linking with the UNDP-UNEP-WRI supported Green Climate Fund (GCF) Readiness Program in Ghana, and work has been initiated to identify potential entry points for NAP support in the country.
