EIA-EMP and Acquisition of Permits for Port Operations

Main Banner

With bigger and better facilities being phased-in by GPHA, and the central government offering new
incentives for trade, value addition services, manufacturing and export, more and more shippers
are discovering the benefits of using Ghana’s ports. Consequently, the ports have undergone substantial
development based on strategically engineered masterplans.
As a result, GPHA commissioned CARES Group to undertake a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) to take account of the implementation of these masterplans, the resulting change in port operations and clusters, and ongoing developments in the Tema and Takoradi Ports.
CARES Group was also responsible for providing an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) for the current port operations and supporting in the acquisition of Environmental Permits from the regulators, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
