Ghana’s resilient, inclusive, and green recovery from the COVID-19 and sustainable development would depend on how efficiently and effectively growing cities would be managed, it said.

World Bank Country Director for Ghana, Liberia and Sierra Leone Pierre Laporte said residents of beneficiary municipalities would enjoy improved access to urban services, such as better roads, efficient services, and reduced flooding.

“The additional financing will further focus on strengthening the capacity of secondary cities on climate change mitigation and adaptation,” Laporte added.
