|Abstract: ||In response to climate change threats, climate compatible development aims to fostermitigation and
adaptation actions without compromising development progress. However, these three elements
relate to a range of key climate-sensitive sectors and are normally addressed separately. This
investigation examines the extent to which policies in climate-sensitive sectors are consistent with
each other in framing adaptation, mitigation and development actions, and identifies key actions
needed to improve policy coherence in Ghana.We use content analysis of policy documents, amultistakeholder
workshop and expert interviews to address the following research questions: a) to what
extent are Ghana's agriculture, energy, water, forest and wildlife sector policies aligned with climate
adaptation, mitigation and development?|
