Project Description
Strengthening Flood Management in the White Volta Basin
$1,500,000 02/2015 - 03/2018

This project aims to strengthen the institutional capacity of Government of Ghana agencies responsible for flood and disaster risk management through two areas: (i) strengthening flood forecasting in the White Volta Basin; and (ii) strengthening institutional capacities for disaster preparedness. This will result in increased accuracy and timeliness of flood forecasts in the White Volta Basin; a greater portion of beneficiaries, gender disaggregated, receiving tailored flood risk information; more hydrological and meteorological stations reporting in real time to flood forecasting; flood risk maps for districts in the White Volta Basin; short courses on disaster risk management (DRM) delivered at various levels in Ghana; and advocacy events on DRM.
