Ghana: Accra Urban Profile 2009

United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT). 2009. Ghana: Accra Urban Profile. (pdf, 2.6MB) Nairobi, HABITAT.

The urban profiling is a rapid and action-oriented urban assessment of needs and capacity-building gaps at national and local levels. It is currently being implemented in over 20 countries in Africa and the Arab states. The urban profiling uses a structured approach where priority interventions are agreed upon through consultative processes.The urban profiling methodology consists of three phases: (1) a rapid participatory urban profiling at national and local levels, focusing on governance, informal settlements, gender and HIV/AIDS, environment, and proposed interventions; (2) detailed priority proposals; and (3) project implementation. The urban profiling in Ghana encompasses profiles of Accra, Tamale, and Ho, each published as a separate report.

This report constitutes a general background, a synthesis of the four themes: governance, informal settlements, gender and HIV/AIDS, and environment – and priority project proposals.
