Greater Accra


Regional Minister - Hon. Ishmael Ashitey

 

The region shares boundaries with the Eastern region in the South Eastern, Volta region in the South West and the Central region in the South.

It has a coastline of approximately 225 kilometres, stretching from Kokrobite in the west to Ada in the east. The soils have low organic contents with shallow top soils which limit the capacity for crop production. The vegetation is mainly coastal savannah shrubs interspersed with thickets. Some trees are however found mostly in the Dangme West and Ga districts.

Analysis of the of the region shows that Greater Accra has remained the most densely populated region in the country since 1960. The population density has increased from 167 persons in 1960 to 441 persons in 1984 to 895.5 persons per square kilometre in 2000. The intercensal growth rate of 4.4 per cent between 1984 and 2000 is much in excess of the national average of 2.7 per cent per annum and implies a doubling time of 16 years.

An additional district has been created by splitting the Ga District into Ga West (with Amasaman as capital) and Ga East (with Abokobi as capital). The sex ratio has increased slightly from 96 in 1984 to 97.7 males to 100 females in 2000. The factors responsible for the excess of females in 2000 include male out-migration and higher male mortality.
