Ghana Dedicated Grant Mechanism: Voices from the field

This publication echoes the voices of individuals, communities and community-based organizations who share their experiences as beneficiaries of the Ghana Dedicated Grant Mechanism Project (G-DGM). It demonstrates how the World Bank-funded project has promoted the active participation of 53 local communities in activities to help reduce deforestation, forest degradation and the impacts of climate change.

Through the DGM project, which was implemented by Solidaridad West Africa, over 17,000 individuals (52 percent are women) from the Western North, Bono and Bono East regions are now climate-aware and climate-smart. Additionally, the project provided grants to communities, individuals and community-based organizations to fully implement small-scale, climate-smart sustainable initiatives.
