Buipe City Structure Plan Report

As the capital of Central Gonja District, Buipe is a grade 3 urban settlement located approximately 100km south-west of Tamale. Located strategically along the Lake Volta and North-South economic development corridor, Buipe is connected to both southern Ghana and cross-border towards Burkina Faso. Though remaining largely as an agrarian economy with existing issues of poverty, flooding, poor infrastructure and accessibility, there is huge potential for Buipe to leverage on the lake transport, its strategic location relative to its regional neighbours and availability of land to catalyse industrialization and urban development. This hence help in generating economic growth, creating employment opportunities and improving living quality of the growing city.
