PROJECT SUMMARY
Project start: Jan 2021
Project completion: Oct 2021
Sectors: Water Resources
Project location: Ghana

Climate change in Ghana can be observed through
temperature rise, declining rainfall totals and high
incidence of climate extreme events, and the country
is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change
through its exposure to droughts, floods, and sea
level rise, combined with sensitive socio-economic
sectors and a low level of preparedness. Agriculture is
among the sectors most exposed to climate change,
since production depends on water availability and
suitable climatic conditions.
The main objective of the assignment is to ensure
continuous access to high quality wholesome water
for agriculture use throughout the year in a changing
climate, through sustainable use of rainwater
harvesting.

SERVICES PROVIDED:
To assess the vulnerabilities to climate change and identify options for the adaptation of rainwater harvesting for agriculture. CARES are providing the Team Leader and expertise in Civil, Irrigation and Hydraulic Engineering, Land and Soils Surveying and Site Investigations, Environment and Communications to conduct the feasibility studies on the water harvesting potential and options for adaptation for agriculture in the project area.
