Boat accidents have become a matter of public concern during recent times as a result of their frequency in recording high fatalities on the Volta Lake of Ghana.

This study sought to find out the main causes of these frequent events and to identify the various ways it affects life in totality.

Besides, the book tries to investigate efforts made by some institutions including government to curb the situation and also to discuss relevant interventions in matters relating to the various forms of boat accidents on the lake.

A case study approach was therefore adopted; leading to the choice of Abotoase in the Jasikan District of the Volta Region as the study area.

The main approach to the study was qualitative where different data collection techniques were used to gather relevant information for the study.

Major concepts such as accidents, governance and risk culture/behavior were considered in explaining the findings.

A theoretical framework of accidents was adapted and modified after Rick Curtis (1995) to explain the interrelationship among the two categories of factors (natural/environmental and human-induced) and how they work to cause accidents.
