Ghana: Involve Communities in Addressing Climate Change

Mr Romanus Gyang, National Coordinator, CARE International, has called on stakeholders and policy makers to adopt a bottom up approach in supporting vulnerable communities to address their needs. Mr Gyang, who is also in charge of the Adaptation Learning Programme (ALP), reiterated that the impact of climate change was devastating and affected every one, hence the need to involve the people at the grassroots level in programmes that were designed to help them cope with the effects of climate change. The National Coordinator made these statements at Kariganga in the Garu-Tempane District, where partners and policy makers visited some ALP communities to share skills and generate evidence of community based adaptation and best practices of coping with the effects of climate change.
