Ghana is vulnerable to flooding, especially in its coastal areas, and droughts, particularly in the Northern Savannah belt. It also experiences wildfires, pest invasions, and disease epidemics. Accra, its largest city, sits on an eroding coastline where informal settlements are particularly vulnerable to flooding and resultant water borne diseases. Since 2010, the Government of Ghana has been implementing a coordinated, multi-sector, multi-level approach to building resilience by strengthening the agricultural sector, improving natural resource management, and improving urban infrastructure.
