The Ghana dams dialogue (2006–2010) was designed to learn lessons about resettlement from past dams in Ghana and to improve social outcomes when building a new generation of dams in Ghana. Bui~Dam was completed in 2013 and some 1200 people in 8 affected communities were resettled between 2009 and 2011.

The study asks how the lessons learned from past experience were applied and how the national level dialogue ultimately fed~through into improved policy and practice as seen in the observed outcomes for affected communities at Bui Dam.
