Abstract

Ghana has undertaken many resettlement schemes as a result of development projects; for example Weija, Asuofuah, TemaManhean, Akosombo and Kpong resettlement schemes. The Akosombo resettlement was built in 1962 by the VRA as a result of the Akosombo dam construction which displaced about 80,000 people living along the river. The same VRA had the opportunity to build the Kpong Dam and to resettle the displaced people around the Dam catchment area. These past resettlement experiences of the country were characterized by repeated failures and it is expected that the Bui Dam resettlement will be successful and sustainable. The study therefore seeks to find the role infrastructure provision play in the lives of project affected people to resettlement sustainability
