Some years ago the Norwegian Directorate for Nature Management contributed to the Oil for development program under The Norwegian Agency for Development (NORAD). The program contributes to projects in Africa, Asia and South America. Ghana was, and still is, one of the partners to the Oil for Development Program.
As part of this mission it was agreed with the Ghanaian partners that Ragnvald Larsen and Howard Frederick (as an external consultant) should visit EPA and other relevant institutions to establish a firmer basis for further collaboration on environmental data management.
The attached report is from work done in Ghana in 2012. The work was mainly done by Howard Frederick, but contributions were also done by Roger Lewis Leh (EPA) and Ragnvald Larsen.
