The Maritime Strategic Sector Cooperation (SSC) between Denmark and Ghana will enter its 3rd phase in 2022.
Experts from the Danish Maritime Authority (DMA), Danish Geodata Agency (DGA), the Embassy of Denmark, Ghana Maritime Authority (GMA), Ghana Ports, and the Harbours Authority (GPHA) have been working on thematic areas of the new phase.
As part of ways to enhance maritime safety on the Volta Lake, experts say the phase three of the project will work on in order to save lives and properties of its users.
A delegation from Danish Maritime Authority (DMA), Danish Geodata Agency (DGA), the Embassy of Denmark, and the Ministry of Transport embarked on a two-day reconnaissance trip to Kpando Torkor and Akosombo to get some baseline information as a first preparatory step.
They had informative discussions with the Kpando Municipal Assembly, the Akpini Traditional Council, Volta Lake Transport Company Ltd., the Canoe Operators and Fishermen Association and other stakeholders.
The existence of tree stumps and rocks, uncharted nature of the lake and lack of proper landing sites were key concerns raised.
According to the delegations, discussions and preparations will continue to ensure a solid platform for the continuation of the already very successful Maritime cooperation between Denmark and Ghana.
