Ghana, like the entire African continent, is affected by climate change. Temperatures in Ghana are expected to continue rising in the future, rainfall in the rainy season and drought in the dry season will increase and cause socio-economic damage. Ghana in general, but especially the northern savannah region, is at high risk of flooding, drought and bush fires. The urban regions, including the capital Accra located in the south of the country, are increasingly affected by heavy rainfall.
