Abstract: In response to climate change threats, climate compatible development aims to fostermitigation and adaptation actions without compromising development progress. However, these three elements relate to a range of key climate-sensitive sectors and are normally addressed separately. This investigation examines the extent to which policies in climate-sensitive sectors are consistent with each other in framing adaptation, mitigation and development actions, and identifies key actions needed to improve policy coherence in Ghana.We use content analysis of policy documents, amultistakeholder workshop and expert interviews to address the following research questions: a) to what extent are Ghana's agriculture, energy, water, forest and wildlife sector policies aligned with climate adaptation, mitigation and development?
