‘Provide comprehensive plan on dealing with flooding’ – Institute of Planners to Akufo-Addo

The comments come after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo instructed Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies in the Greater Accra Region to demolish all structures in waterways in a bid to end flooding.

 

There are standards for reservations on waterways that are contained in our plan

They can go with that and clear the structures.”

 

“We also have flood cycles that come about every 5 to 20 years

We have to be clear about what module we are going with

If we are going with a higher flood return period of say 10 years flood cycle, we may find ourselves demolishing too many structures.”

 

The onset of the rainy season has seen many parts of Accra inundated, with several homes counting their losses after floodwaters destroyed a number of properties.
