Ghana put forward 31 mitigation and adaptation actions in its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) in response to the Lima Call for Action. In all, there are 20 mitigation and 11 adaptation actions in 7 priority sectors which will be implemented in a 10- year period (2020-2030). The priority sectors on are  (a) sustainable land use including food security; (b) climate proof infrastructure; (c) equitable social development; (d) sustainable mass transportation; (e) sustainable energy security; (f) sustainable forest management; and (g) alternative urban waste.  In the 10-year period, Ghana needs USD 22.6 billion in investments from domestic and international public and private sources to finance these actions. USD 6.3 billion is expected to be mobilized from domestic sources whereas the USD 16.3 billion will come from international support.

In the portal, each of the 31 actions has a dedicated webpage which contains information on the following: (a) Background information on action NDC action and institutional arrangement (b) Implementation progress, (c) Impacts of the action and system for tracking and reporting and (d) Finance, capacity and technological support.
