More than 2.5 million people in the Odaw River Basin of the Greater Accra Region will benefit from improved flood risk and solid waste management as well as improved access to basic infrastructure and services in targeted communities under the Greater Accra Resilient and Integrated Development (GARID) project.
The $200 million funded project was approved by the World Bank Board of Executive Directors.
The GARID project will bring transformative changes in the Region.
The Odaw River Basin is identified as the entry point of the intervention for the first phase given its high flood risk, population, and business density. It will indirectly benefit the entire 4.6 million population of the GAR through improvements in flood warning and response system, and solid waste management capacity improvements.
