Mainstreaming Resilience into Local Development Planning, 2014, UDS

This reports highlights the findings from a research project conducted by the University of Development Studies, Ghana in response to the ‘Preparedness and Resilience Research’ small grants program (Phase I) implemented by Response 2 Resilience Institute and the Global Disaster Preparedness Center

Abstract:

This research project was initiated in response to the discourse on global environmental change and the need for mainstreaming environmental change adaptation into development planning for building community resilience in sub-Saharan Africa and the world at large. The research examined how and to what extent District Development Planning was used as an instrument for promoting community resilience to environmental change in Wa Municipality, northwestern Ghana. Efforts at building community resilience to environmental change through District Development Planning are modest and cannot produce significant outcomes given the magnitude of environmental change. However, efforts are being made to give community resilience more attention in development planning in the municipality.
