The CREW project is one of the efforts being deployed to follow up on the conclusions of The African Adaptation Programme (AAP) in Ghana by extending the risk mapping to another 10 pilot districts, one in each of the 10 regions of Ghana. Within these pilot districts, hotspots (communities) were identified for more in depth risk profiling and definition of possible mitigation measures. A total of 10 pilot districts were selected for under the CREW project, one in each of Ghana’s regions. In these pilot districts both risk mapping (hazard, vulnerability and risk) and development of an Early Warning System (EWS) have taken place. Within each pilot district, 1, 2 or 3 hotspot communities were selected. Field visits were made in 2014 to all these hotspot communities in order to make an assessment of their risk profile and to define proposed mitigation measures.
