July 28, 2017
Dr Bob Offei Manteaw, Climate Adaptation and Resilience Specialist, has urged Government to commit to Climate Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction by implementing policies and strategies that would build community resilience.
He said Ghana should also take climate change and its associated disasters seriously.
He appealed to the Government to begin the implementation of climate change policies and strategies to help people, communities and institutions build their adaptive and resilience capacities.
Talking specifically on the Tamale floods, Dr Manteaw warned that the occurrence was climate change-induced, adding that, more of them were to be expected across the country.
He called for collaborative efforts to address the challenges of climate change.
