Abstract: To ensure project findings become incorporated into national policy and planning, the project team, through a participatory research approach, involved representatives from the Ministry of Health Ghana, Ghana Environmental Protection Agency, Ghana Meteorological Services, The National Disaster Management Organization and the city engineer unit of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly. Community facilitators made it possible to bring people together to discuss an issue, even though they were from very poor communities where ensuring daily household survival is imperative, and organization is difficult. Study communities have taken the lead through assembly representatives to have their voices heard at Metropolitan Assembly meetings where decisions are made.
