Adaptive Water Management at the Local Scale Synthesis report Ghana

The main goals of the Ghana project were to assess changes in water availability in the Dayi River basin and to support local farmers in setting up irrigated agriculture and agroforestry, as a local climate adaptation initiative. Next to this, the project aimed to support the development of a Basin Management Plan and to include climate change, water use for irrigation (licensing system) and agroforestry (Buffer zone of rivers and lakes), and also to explore ways to involve local actors in the basin’s development. The project was implemented by the Ghanaian NGO Development Institute (DI), Water Resources Commission of Ghana (WRC), Acacia Water, Both ENDS, and Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM).
