What is it about?
The study confirmed a widely held perception, with scientific evidence, that there is a disconnect between what climate change managers know and are doing in terms of adaptation and mitigation efforts and what stakeholders should know and are expected to do towards achieving functional participatory engagements in Ghana. This was evidenced by outcome of respondents’ responses on perceived level of knowledge and awareness in addressing climate change risk. Age, gender, level of education and work experience were all significant in determining the outcomes with perceived knowledge and awareness marginal gap of 28% between management (MRs) and stakeholder respondents (SRs).

It calls for needs assessment on a governance system that will chart a new order to transform individual and household attitudes through curriculum development, awareness training, coping strategies to capacity building for members of the communities and households.
