GREENING GHANA

BACKGROUND

This is environmental protection program designed to protect; rivers and water bodies, forest, nature reserves, gardens, climate, etc. and also to broadcast on the need to recycle. The project works through government institutions, non-governmental organizations, activist groups, clubs, societies, schools, private institutions, and communities etc. to reach out to the Ghanaian community to implement environmental protection strategies. Critical issues such as deforestation, ‘galamsey’ (illegal mining operation in the forest, rivers and water bodies), littering, water pollution, carbon emission, etc. are those areas ‘Greening Ghana’ focuses on.
