GCAP’s intervention areas covers both Accra Plains and the SADA Zone.
The Accra Plains is a large area of approximately 200,000ha that is adjacent to the Volta River, downstream of the Akosombo Dam, in close proximity to Accra and Tema and in the coastal zone with a bi-modal rainy season.
This is in an area characterized by guinea-savannah agro-ecological conditions. It covers the three administrative regions of the Upper East and Upper West regions, and the Northern region and bordering districts from Volta region and Brong Ahafo. Collectively, this SADA zone covers 100,000 km2 and accounts for a population of approximately 4.2 million.
