Three Countries That Share A Water Boundary With Ghana

A border is a physical or political line that separates geographic areas. Borders are political boundaries. They separate countries, states, provinces, counties, cities, and towns.

First,with the establishment of boundary on the ground, the possibility of any territorial disputes between neighboring countries will be less. 

Ghana sits on the Atlantic Ocean and borders Togo, Cote d'Ivoire, and Burkina Faso. It borders Côte d'Ivoire Ivory Coast to the west, Burkina Faso to the north, Togo to the east, and the Gulf of Guinea to the south.

Ghana, which lies in the center of the West African coast, shares borders with the three French-speaking nations of Côte d'Ivoire to the west, Togo to the east, and Burkina Faso Burkina, formerly Upper Volta to the north. To the south are the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean.

Imagine a world without borders. People and goods could cross freely between countries and a central government could rule everything. To some people it may sound like a utopia, while to others it could sound chaotic.

Borders determine how far a government's power reaches. People within a country's boundary have to follow its laws and pay its taxes. If they move or travel to another country, they'll need to know and abide by the laws set there. Some borders separate people who have different ways of life.
