Ghana is a West African country that sits below the Sahara desert and above the Gulf of Guinea. It is a coastal country with a landscape covered in rich tropical forest and contains the largest man-made lake in the world, Lake Volta. A country with an economy built on agriculture, Ghana boasts of botanical gardens and animal sanctuaries but mismanagement and mass urbanization has caused an exponential rise in environmental degradation.
