Situated on the west coast of Africa, Ghana is bordered by Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast and Togo. With a variable climate, southern Ghana has a short dry season with high temperatures all year round,meaning a variety of crops can be harvested annually. The climate is harsher in the north, with a six-week rainy season and an increasing danger of drought. People rely on raising hardy breeds of animals, and growing ‘drought resistant’ crops such as sorghum and millet.
