The sixth and final national capacity building workshop on “Nature-based solutions for flood and drought management in the Volta Basin” for the stakeholders of Ghana with a view to develop bankable projects is presently on-going in Accra, Ghana for the next three days (15-17 February 2022). This is organized under the framework of the Volta Flood and Drought Management (VFDM) project, funded by the Adaptation Fund. The national workshops in the other five Volta Basin countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Mali and Togo) were successfully completed between November 2021 and February 2022.
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Volta Basin Authority (VBA) and Global water Partnership-West Africa (GWP-WA) Consortium of the VFDM project in collaboration with International Union for conservation of Nature (IUCN), as a technical partner, will strengthen national capacities on the nature-based solutions for effective management of floods and drought events and taking it into account in identification and development of bankable projects for the mobilization of related financing at both national and regional levels.
