Through this initiative, the government of Ghana has secured a total of US$ million to help improve the water and sanitation situation within the Greater Accra Metropolitan Assembly (GAMA) (The World Bank-IBRB-IDA ). The GAMA Sanitation and Water Project is a government of Ghana project supported by the World Bank and the Global. The Greater Accra Metropolitan Area (GAMA) is one of the fastest-growing city regions in West Africa. GAMA is exposed to recurrent shocks and stresses on top of numerous developmental challenges and climate change issues that threaten development gains.

  An efficient solid waste management system remains an appropriate tool for achieving sound environmental health in Accra. Improving access to safe disposal facilities, in addition to conducting awareness campaigns on the health impacts of poor sanitation, will help alleviate the problems of improper waste disposal and eventually improve the.   However, the distribution of hotels among the regions has not been even. From Table 2, about 20% of the rooms were located in the Ashanti Region and 12% in the Western GAR has the largest number of hotels, approximately 34% of all rooms, including all the four- and five-star hotels in (Ghana Tourist Board (GTB), ).The growth of hotels has not been without effects .

Similar to Ga West, Ga East used to be a rural area, but due to rapid urbanization in Accra, the district‟s population is greater thanpeople. Sao Paulo and Jakarta are both megacities, renowned as the sites of severe environmental distress. Accra does not yet face the megacity problems.

Yet the local environmental problems described in this report on Accra are probably a far greater burden for local inhabitants than, for example, the widely publicised ambient air pollution in Sao Paulo. Think globally, act locally emphasizes the importance of scale in dealing with environmental challenges, but not how to factor it in.

This major new book focuses on the spatial dimensions of urban environmental burdens, showing how important it is to take these into account when pursuing environmental justice and good governance - whether in the context of the sanitary risks of slum.

The author examines geographies of environmental hazards in Accra, declared a Millennium City on I5 January With the aid of both primary and secondary data, it is shown how environmental governance has shifted under neoliberalism, and the author demonstrates how a review of Accra's waste disposal problems could elucidate how such paradigm shift has contributed to urban social injustice.

Housing has been a relatively neglected site for public health action. However, it remains a place where human beings spend the most part of their day. As a result, the quality of housing has consequences for human health.

We investigate residential characteristics associated with self-rated occupant health in five neighbourhoods in the Greater Accra Region, Ghana. Municipal solid waste management in Accra, Ghana, is at present delivered in an unsustainable manner. Due to uncontrolled urbanisation, large quantities of waste are generated daily in Accra, and this exerts much pressure on an over strained solid waste management system.

Coupled with weak institutional capacity, and lack of resources, both human and capital, the city authorities face.

Accra, the capital city of Ghana, is characterized by limited networked supply, heterogeneous water providers, and various forms of provision. In this paper, we explore how the people delivering water through water tankers shape the distribution of water across the city. Drawing on empirical descriptions of water sourcing and distribution by truck drivers, we show that who gets what water at.

This study examined the geographies of ecological hazards in the “Garden City” of West Africa, Kumasi. The data collection involved questionnaire survey of households using proportional representative sample of residential communities. This was complemented with 6 focus group discussions and 12 in-depth interviews with officers involved in environmental management.

This work is the product of a collaborative effort of Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies (MMDAs) of the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area and ministries of the Government of Ghana, with contributions of staff of The World Bank. The findings, interpretations, and conclusions expressed in this work do not necessarily reflect.
