As part of efforts to improve tree cover while enhancing local climate change adaptation and mitigation, Tropenbos Ghana marked this year’s Green Ghana Day with school pupils in our operational landscapes. The occasion provided pupils, ranging from Basic School through to the Senior High School level, with hands-on tree planting and nurturing opportunities. The students were also sensitized on the relevance of trees in the environment, and how to protect the environment among other things. The initiative forms part of youth action on climate change under the Green Livelihood Alliance Programme.
“I’ve heard a lot about Green Businesses in Sefwi-Wiawso where you [Tropenbos Ghana] operate, but unfortunately, I have not availed myself to learn what exactly it is. When I got the invitation to attend this Business Case Development workshop, I was happy because I knew it was an opportunity to learn more about Green Businesses and also, how best I can contribute to climate-resilient businesses in my region,” – Mr Stephen Kwame Yeboah-Mantey (Western North Regional Director of the Ghana Enterprise Agency)
In May this year, the Government of Ghana through Executive Instrument 144, the Forests (Cessation of Forest Reserve) Instrument, 2022 declassified some portions of the Achimota Forest Reserve.
