This document contains the proceedings of the National Coastal Planning Workshop in Ghana. In April 2016, extreme tidal events along the coast of Ghana reported as “Tidal Waves” did considerable damage to private and public infrastructure. The wave events and destruction that followed has highlighted the need for a forum to discuss the issues, learn lessons and put institutional arrangements in place to plan for and respond to coastal hazards. The workshop’s objectives included understanding the nature and extent of these events and exploring ways to help address such losses in the future and consider the range of options to protect, rehabilitate, relocate and redesign vulnerable settlements and infrastructure. A total of 34 participants from local and international institutions, as well as representatives of affected communities, attended the 2-day workshop held at the Pempamsie Hotel in Cape Coast.
