Assessing Ghana’s Position in Achieving the SDGs and the Implications of the Paris Agreement


Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei


Ghana’s current wellbeing and future sustainability are assessed with respect to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) using the innovative APPS (Assessment, Projection and Policy of Sustainable Development Goals) methodology. The APPS framework highlighted recent progresses in Ghana’s wellbeing, in particular between 2000 and 2010, driven by remarkable socioeconomic improvements. Considering a business-as-usual scenario, APPS projections confirm a rising sustainability performance up to 2030. A policy scenario, envisioning the compliance with the emission reduction targets of the Paris agreement, can slightly increase Ghana’s sustainability. However, in 2030 Ghana will still be far from achieving many SDGs; further efforts will be needed to improve population health and education, to reduce inequality and promote environmental protection, not overlooking the binding constraint of a rising public debt.
