Climate Risk Case Study - Agribusiness - Ghana
This report presents the outcomes of a study which analyzed the potential climate-related risks for Ghana Oil Palm Development Company (GOPDC). GOPDC owns two oil palm plantations at Kwae and Okumaning in Ghana’s Eastern Region. It also owns a mill and refinery at Kwae, where oil palm fresh fruit bunches (FFB) are processed into crude palm oil (CPO) and palm kernel oil (PKO), as well as refined products (primarily olein and stearin).
As well as investigating the potential effects of climate change, the risk analysis has assessed how variability in current climate conditions affects GOPDC’s operations, and has identified where the greatest climatic sensitivities lie.
