Ghana’s Second National Communication to the UNFCCC
The preparation of the Second National Communication (SNC) is in furtherance to meeting its obligation under the UNFCCC. The SNC is meant to build on, update and report additional information subsequent to the Initial National Communication (INC) and facilitated by the sets of guidelines contained in the annex to decision 17/CP.8. The main objective of the SNC is to present and communicate to the extent possible to the Conference of Parties, how Ghana is implementing the Convention and in particular, highlighting pertinent issues, gaps, problems, constraints and achievement. The information provided in the SNC covers between 2000 and 2006. The SNC is also considered by Ghana as its flagship drive to shaping climate change policy development, planning and facilitating its integration into sustainable development.
