In 2014, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs supported public-private projects in the field of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and/or integral water management in Ghana through the Ghana WASH Window.

The NCEA's advisory report provides information on:

  • EIA screening against Ghanaian EIA legislation;
  • advice on legislative and procedural requirements for environmental assessment for the various proposals and how to effectively meet these;
  • where relevant, additional advice on how sustainability issues and environmental and climate risks can be managed in project development and implementation.
