A core component of the ESRM Ghana’s implementation is capacity building on E&S risk management. The program primarily focuses on training of local consultants who will support the financial institutions in implementing E&S best practices. In addition to trainings by the ESRM Ghana team, the program collaborates with local training institutions to develop commercial training curriculum and courses on E&S risk management.
The ESRM Ghana program signed a cooperation agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under which the collaboration will support capacity development on E&S risk management, and sensitization for relevant stakeholders.
In April 2018, the program trained over thirty (30) local consultants in collaboration with the EPA training school. In August 2018, the program trained over forty (40) local consultants in collaboration with the EPA training school.
