New Climate Innovation Hub to Jumpstart Ghana's Green Economy

The World Bank Group has inaugurated a multimillion climate innovation centre to support Ghana's growth strategy to help more than 100 local clean technology businesses develop and commercialise innovative solutions to mitigate effects of climate.

The launch of the first technology hub in the country on Tuesday came barely four months after the World Bank approved a financial package of $17.2 million to fund the Ghana Climate Innovation Centre located at Ashesi University College in Berekusu in the Eastern region.

The centre will support the country's climate change policy to help over 300,000 Ghanaians increase resilience to climate change in the next 10 years. http://www.theafricareport.com/West-Africa/new-climate-innovation-hub-to-jumpstart-ghanas-green-economy.html
