Promoting industrial symbiosis in green MSMEs | Ghana, Policy 2020
A Solution Summary Ghana 2020
With an estimated real GDP growth of 7.1%, Ghana is one of Africa’s fastest growing economies. A key aspect of Ghana’s sustainability efforts is therefore linked to the environmental impact of industrialisation, including the use of raw materials and generation of industrial by-products and waste. Addressing the environmental impact of this sector is key to reducing carbon emissions and improving resource efficiency, contributing to climate change mitigation goals. This necessitates the development of an effective circular economy that sees waste as a resource and ensures value is retained throughout the lifecycle of resources and products.
