BENCHH 2024: Collaboration is key to solving Ghana’s housing issues, says dep minister Armah




The Built Environment National Conference on Housing and Hydrology (BENCHH 2024) commenced in Accra on Tuesday, bringing together industry experts, policymakers, and key stakeholders to tackle Ghana’s critical challenges in housing and hydrology.


Speaking at the opening of the three-day event, Dr Prince Hamid Armah, deputy minister for works and housing, emphasised the significance of collaboration.


“The primary goal of BENCHH 2024 is to foster collaboration among industry experts, policymakers, researchers, financiers, and other key stakeholders. By working together, we can develop innovative and sustainable solutions to the hydrology and housing challenges that impact our nation,” he stated.


The conference, themed “Enhancing Collaboration to Tackle Ghana’s Housing and Hydrology Challenges,” aims to create a platform for dialogue and partnership. “By facilitating dialogue and partnership, we aim to create a synergistic environment where ideas can flourish and lead to actionable strategies,” Armah added.


Participants will engage in dynamic discussions and workshops focusing on practical solutions for issues such as flooding, water resource management, affordable housing, and infrastructure resilience. “Sustainable and resilient development is at the core of our discussions. We are committed to promoting practices that not only meet current needs but also ensure the well-being of future generations,” Armah said.


The outcomes of these deliberations are expected to shape policies governing the built environment sector. “Our sessions will highlight best practices, innovative technologies, and policy recommendations to drive this agenda forward,” Armah stated.


Armah called on attendees to actively participate and collaborate, stating, “Together, we have the power to transform challenges into opportunities and make significant strides towards a sustainable and prosperous future for Ghana.”


The conference will run until July 4, with various sessions designed to produce actionable strategies and influence policy-making processes for a more conducive environment for development.
