Increased Resilience to Climate Change in Northern Ghana through the Management Water Resources and Diversification of Livelihoods

Ghana

The Adaptation Fund was established to finance concrete adaptation projects and programmes in developing countries that are parties to the Kyoto Protocol and are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change.

Titre : Increased Resilience to Climate Change in Northern Ghana through the Management Water Resources and Diversification of Livelihoods

Country : Ghana

Date approbation : 03/05/2015 Durée 4 ans
Identification : GHA/MIE/Water/2012/1

Contexte
The programme targets the three regions in the northern part of Ghana : the Upper East, Upper West and Northern Regions. Compared to other regions of the country, these three northern regions have high degree of exposure to climate variability and change characterized by increasing temperatures and decreasing and erratic rainfall. These factors make the northern regions highly vulnerable to climate change and high priority regions for climate change adaptation.

Objectives
The main objective of the programme is to enhance the resilience and adaptive capacity of rural livelihoods to climate impacts and risks on water resources in the northern region of Ghana. The objective will be achieved through key results centered on the improvement of water access and also increase institutional capacity and coordination for integrated water management to support other uses of water resources especially for the diversification of livelihoods by rural communities.
