2021 Annual Report

Economic growth in Ghana over the past two decades led to reduced poverty and improved social indicators. Since 2013, the National Climate Change Policy promoted a climate-compatible economy that achieves sustainable development through equitable low-carbon growth. Subsequently, the National Medium-Term Development Policy Framework (2018-2021) further refined Ghana’s vision by providing an overarching structure for transformative change.

This policy framework was key for PAGE’s engagement since 2014. In line with the existing policies and Ghana’s decentralized planning approach, PAGE focused on planning and monitoring processes of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs). PAGE work has contributed to the mainstreaming of Inclusive Green Economy (IGE) into sub-national planning and reporting; inclusion of climate change education in basic schools across the country; initiation of thematic policy reforms across sustainable finance, green jobs and resource efficiency; as well as individual and institutional capacity-building

PAGE began a gradual phase-out of its support in 2019 and completed the development of a sustainability plan to safeguard PAGE results and maintain the green economy agenda. In 2020, the urgent need to cope with the impacts of COVID-19, provided an  avenue to remain further engaged with the country and facilitate a green recovery in line with government priorities focused on the promotion of green finance, green sub-national recovery plans and capacity development for green enterprises.
