The study addresses the need for easily accessible flood hazard maps in regions of Ghana prone to recurrent flooding. It utilized an additive model to create a composite flood hazard index for the study area, focusing on the Northern region as an example. The index incorporated various variables such as distance to the White Volta River, population density, number of towns, crop area, and high-ground availability. It also mapped maximum flood hazard zones using GIS applications, highlighting the effectiveness of GIS in flood hazard mapping.
