Counting the costs: The impact of power crises on manufacturing sector productivity

Past Event ISSER Conference Center, University of Ghana, Legon Firms and Energy

The workshop is being organised to present the findings of a recent IGC funded study which analysed and measured the extent of productivity losses experienced by SMEs in the manufacturing sector during the 2012-2015 power crisis in Ghana.

Among other things, the study finds that firms experienced a 10% loss in productivity in the wake of the power crisis. The aim of this workshop is to bring the business community, policymakers, and academics together to deliberate on the findings and to discuss policy recommendations.

This event is open to the public.
