Tropenbos Ghana and EcoCare Ghana, both Environmental Non-Governmental Organizations under the Landscapes and Environmental Agility (LEAN) project have extended commendations to the Government, the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, and the Forestry Commission for the Green Ghana Project.
The two organizations, in line with the objective of the LEAN project, are also committed to supporting the government to embark on an agenda to restore Ghana’s degraded landscapes, mitigate climate change and enhance the livelihoods of rural communities.
Subsequently, the partnership of Tropenbos Ghana and EcoCare Ghana donated GH¢ 39,000 indigenous and fruit tree seedlings to the Bono East Regional Office of the Forestry Commission to support this remarkable initiative on the 11th of June 2021.
The LEAN project’s objective is to directly contribute to the national efforts of conserving biodiversity, improving livelihoods of smallholder farmers, increasing climate change resilience and reducing emissions from land use changes in the savannah, high forest and transition zones of Ghana.
The four-year project funded by the European Union would be implemented by Rainforest Alliance in partnership with World Vision Ghana, Tropenbos Ghana, and EcoCare Ghana in the High Forest, Savannah and Transition Landscapes of Ghana respectively.
The project will also build climate resilience and promote natural resource conservation through training and mentoring of 12,000 smallholders on Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) and Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) in six selected districts.
The districts are; Offinso North, Offinso Municipal, Nkoranza North, Nkoranza South, Techiman North and Techiman Municipal all within the forest Savanna transition landscape.
Tropenbos Ghana and EcoCare Ghana called on all organizations and individuals to support the Green Ghana Project to help restore our degraded landscapes.
