Climate Change Adaptation, Mitigation and Information & Communications Technologies (ICTs): the Case of Ghana

As this report suggests, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can help developing countries to unlock those opportunities, and overcome the challenges posed by climate change through e-enabled adaptation and mitigation responses.

This report focuses on exploring an increasingly important question: “How can developing countries effectively integrate ICT tools within climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies?”

The contribution of this report is two-fold. It presents the potential of ICTs towards adaptation and mitigation through the concrete case of Ghana, illustrating the challenges and opportunities faced by developing countries in this field. The report complements this analysis by offering concrete lessons learned and practical suggestions aimed at developing country decision makers and practitioners, thus fostering the adoption of novel, ICT-supported approaches to climate change adaptation and mitigation.

This report was prepared by Angelica Valeria Ospina (University of Manchester), Cristina Bueti (ITU), Keith Dickerson and David Faulkner (Climate Associates).
