This thesis outlines the history of the Volta River Project indicating the origin of the initiatives behind the project and the method of implementing it in the face of opposition. A discussion of the variety of aims and expectations of those involved by the scheme indicates widely divergent interests at work. The effects of the scheme are described at length; both the main effects desired by the participants and the so-called side-effects. The extent to which each interest group managed to achieve its aims is described as an aid to assessment of the project. As a result the value of the project to Ghana is called into question, and an indication is given of fundamental criticisms of such projects in general.
