Abstract: Various sectors of the country's economy (health, energy, agriculture and the like) depend on climate, and as such availability of quality climate data becomes essential for climate impact studies in these sectors. Rainfall climate database for Ghana has been developed using Gmet station data spanning a 33-year period (1980 – 2012). Seasonal rainfall for the four agroecological zones have been derived based on 0.25o x 0.25o grids covering the entire country. This allowed a clear evidence of the Inter-Tropical Discontinuity (ITD) migration from the South of the country to the North and back. This study provides a firsthand data for climate impact study, in the aforementioned sectors, across the country.
