Addressing the impact of development, natural hazards and climate change: Hɛn Mpoano’s work in coastal communities in the Western Region has included an innovative Rapid Assessment of the vulnerability and adaptive capacity of 77 coastal communities in Jomoro, Ellembelle, Nzema East, Ahanta West and Shama Districts. Detailed planning work was undertaken with some of the key communities which were identified as being most at risk. This has fostered a process of community action and interaction with District Assemblies to tackle the interrelated issues of increasing coastal poverty, livelihood insecurity and vulnerability in the context of accelerating change.
