Sustainable Development

  • Community Resilience through Early Warning

    Recognizing the importance of strengthening Disaster Risk reduction capacities in achieving sustainable development and poverty reduction in Ghana, this project aims to build capacities within the country to reduce disaster risk by putting in place an integrated early warning system that is both scientific and people-centered.

  • Pilot Demonstration Project on ODS-Waste Management and Disposal

    UNDP Ghana in collaboration with the Environment Protection Agency (EPA), Energy Commission of Ghana and the Center for Rural and Industrial Research (CRIR) has developed an overarching strategy to provide climate and ozone benefits through the Integrated Plan for Energy Efficiency, Climate Mitigation and Ozone-depleting substances (ODS) Reductions for the Refrigeration Sector.

  • Hydro chlorofluorocarbon Phase-out Management Plan for Ghana

    The objectives of Phase 1 of the Hydrochlorofluorocarbon Phase-out Management Plan (HPMP) are to establish an enabling environment for safe use of hydrocarbon refrigerants and achieve timely, environmentally sound, sustainable and cost-effective phase-out of 17.3 tonnes of substances with Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP) as required under the Montreal Protocol.

  • Institutional Strengthening (Phase 9 & 10)

    The project will allow the National Ozone Office to continue to plan, organize, direct and coordinate all activities required for the implementation of Ghana's strategy in all areas related to the Phase-out of Ozone Depleting Substances under the Montreal Protocol.

  • Africa Adaptation programme

    The Africa Adaptation Programme (AAP) Ghana helps the Government and the people of Ghana to develop integrated adaptation plans and actions to build resilience to disasters and climate change. AAP Ghana works on developing capacities and financing options for mainstreaming climate change adaptation into various policies, systems, and sectors in Ghana, with a focus on early-warning systems.

  • Promoting of Appliance of Energy Efficiency and Transformation of the Refrigerating Appliances Market in Ghana

    The primary objective of the project is to improve the energy efficiency of appliances marketed and used in Ghana through the introduction of a combination of regulatory tools such as Minimum Energy Performance Standards and Information Labels (S&L), and innovative economic tools. The project seeks to strengthen the regulatory and institutional framework, develop monitoring and enforcement mechanisms, and provide training to appliance professionals.

OUR WORK - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

 

Equitable energy access and sound environmental management are critical to achieve sustainable development. The United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) (2012-2016) provides support to strengthen the capacity of Ghana to address energy and environmental challenges at national, regional, and local levels, by focusing on key priority areas, such as climate change, disaster risk reduction, energy and biodiversity.
