Boost in livelihood tourism
Construction of the defense wall is expected to be completed in four years. President Akufo-Addo noted that the area was one of the most important tourist destinations in Ghana. Upon completion, the project will boost fishing activities, protect livelihoods, improve sanitation and health, facilitate the development of civil infrastructure, develop tourism infrastructure and promote tourism, protect social infrastructure, enhance future physical development, and create jobs.

The Ghanaian coastal stretch experiences extensive beach erosion, mainly due to the impact of wave action. Currently, the Axim, Mensah Guinea, Ningo-Prampram, Cape Coast and Anomabu coastal stretches are experiencing extensive beach erosion posing major threats to life and livelihood; as well as buildings, salt pans, fish landing sites and other infrastructure sited in these areas.

Governments over the years have been making investments in coastal protection in order to manage shoreline recession. The successful implementation of these projects will serve to manage shoreline protection for the protection of lives, existing and future physical and social infrastructural development etc. Investors  are being encouraged to invest in infrastructure as a result of the reclamation of land.
