Ghana: Mahama to sign new UN dev't agenda

5 August 2015

'We need to make economic growth more inclusive, that is why we will be signing up to the SGDs this year', said President Mahama at the launch of a long-term national development plan for the country. The UN Development Assistance Framework (2012-2016) provides support for strengthening the capacity of Ghana to address energy and environmental challenges, including a focus on priority areas such as climate change and disaster risk reduction...



With disaster risk increasing globally due to increasing vulnerability to natural hazards, it has become obvious that the SDGs will require a risk-sensitive approach to ensure their accelerated achievement and sustainability.

Disaster risk reduction is an integral part of sustainable development and therefore an important element for the achievement of the MDGs.
