  • This paper analyses the possible implications of oil exploration on Ghanaian cities in the context of existing urban policy. It argues that oil would accelerate the rate of urbanisation both within and without the cities where oil will be mined. There will be opportunities for construction activities and cheap fuel. But these opportunities, the paper reveals, would have adverse effects on the environment and the equitable distribution of urban resources. In the light of this finding, the paper makes some recommendations on how urban policy could be reshaped to nip these potential problems in the bud.
