Ghana Taking on Climate Change: Ghana Country Climate Development Report (CCDR)

Every year, flooding affects around 45,000 Ghanaians. Coastal erosion and sea-level rise is also threatening Ghana’s coastline. Without urgent climate action, an additional one million Ghanaians risk falling into poverty by 2050. Agriculture yields and labor productivity would drop, and incomes could be reduced by up to 40% for the poorest households. The Ghana Country Climate Development Report (CCDR) highlights how the country can turn these challenges into opportunities. With the right reforms and investments, Ghana can deliver large economic and social benefits for its people.
