Ghana: 7m Euro Climate Research to Boost Agriculture and Livelihoods

Ghana is one of two countries in West Africa to host supersites for a major research to develop a comprehensive dataset for the next generation of weather and climate models.

Benin is the other country involved in the three-year project funded by the European Union at a cost of 7million Euros. Massive economic and population growth and urbanization are expected to lead to a tripling of human emissions in southern West Africa between 2000 and 2030. The impacts on human health, ecosystems, food security and the regional climate are largely unknown.
