Ghana's Coastlands Suffering Heatwaves and Floods Due to Climate Change

Dr Denis Worlanyo Aheto, a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences, University of Cape Coast, has called on stakeholders in the marine industry to come up with proactive measures to reduce climate change effects on coastal lands.

Dr Aheto made the call at the opening of a two-day training workshop in Cape Coast on: “Coastal Community Vulnerabilities, Hazards and the Need for Coastal Resilience, Hazards and Spatial Planning,” organised by the Sustainable Fisheries and Coastal Management Capacity Building support Project and sponsored by USAID.

The workshop, with special focus on the recent “Tidal waves events along the coast from Keta to Axim,” is being attended by more than 30 participants from the UCC Centre for Coastal Management, University of Ghana and National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO).
