Environmental Assessment in Lake Volta, Ghana

This project is the fisheries assessment part of an Environmental Assessment being carried out on Lake Volta in Ghana by ERM. Volta Lake is the world’s largest man-made lake with a surface of 8,515 square kilometers (3,861 square miles). It came into being with the construction in 1964 of the Akosombo Dam, a 768,000-kilowatt hydroelectric project managed by the Volta River Authority (VRA) that supplies hydroelectricity to Ghana and neighbouring Togo and Benin.
