Kwadwo (Kojo) Fordjour, AICP has written a great article published at Ghana Web which looks at the state of Town Planning in Ghana. Ghana has a population of 22 million with 385 towns and cities, however there is little planning and few universities offering courses in Town Planning. Kwadwo states that the envisioned plan for Ghana for 2015 will be dream unless planning is made the focus of the vision.
Kwadwo also gives an overview of how the APA is assisting Ghana by providing USA tours and job training to members of the GIP. If you are interested in learning more about how you can help they can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org
