Together we can achieve sustainable management of tropical forestlands for the benefit of people, conservation and sustainable development.More information
A Project Manager of Tropenbos Ghana, an organization working to increase forest cover and promote climate-resilient practices, Mr. Daniel Kofi Abu, has suggested the formation of more governance structures to help curb the challenges of forest depletion and climate change in Ghana.
Tropenbos Ghana, a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), has called on the government to introduce reclamation bond as a condition for the issuance of permits to small-scale miners.
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.
