The Ghana Country Environment Analysis (CEA) has been formulated to assist the Government of Ghana and its development partners to: (a) assess the country’s environmental priorities, the environmental implications of key economic and sector policies, and the country’s institutional capacity to address them; and (b) find practical management, institutional, and policy solutions to handle issues of natural resource management, environmental degradation, and sustainability of growth. The two main outputs of this CEA are (a) a comprehensive report that provides—for each sector/asset—an overview of the sector and its contribution to growth, an analysis of the underlying causes of degradation (with a specific focus on policy, regulatory, and institutional issues and applying public expenditure review as an analytical tool), and a set of implementable recommendations to address these issues; and (b) a set of policy/action matrixes that provide—for each sector/asset—a road map for action in the short, medium, and long-term. Whenever possible, these matrixes are accompanied by financial matrixes that identify the financial requirements for and financial gaps in the implementation of the proposed actions.
