The Accra Plains of Ghana are encompassed in the north-west by the Akwapim escarpment, in the east by the lower Volta River, and in the south by the coast. Bordered this way the Plains cover roughly a triangular area of almost 3000 km². Located in the coastal savannah zone of Ghana the Accra Plains are characterised by a comparatively low level of precipitation (600 - 1200 mm). While open savannah vegetation is considered a natural phenomenon, an increasing biodiversity loss is observed.
