An outline map of Ghana.


CACCI in Ghana is supported by ANAPRI through its member center, ISSER.  Working with Ghana Policy Link, ANAPRI/ISSER is working to re-energize the operation of the country’s Multi-stakeholder Climate Change Technical Working Group for effective NDC and NAP implementation.  In the interim, through an ad hoc but carefully selected CACCI Technical Working group, ANAPRI/ISSER is providing analytical evidence for the development and implementation of realistic and trackable NDC and NAP Implementation Results Frameworks. This involves providing guidance on the choice of indicators and metrics, baselining of the final set of selected indicators, ex-ante analysis to identify pathways to achieve mitigation, and adaptation targets with attention to socioeconomic impacts and tradeoffs as well as mitigation and adaptation policy and program best practices.
