A Rocha Ghana: ‘Green Ghana Project Is Not Worth The Effort And Money’

Spread the love

The Deputy National Director of A Rocha Ghana, Daryl Bossu, disagrees with the government’s decision to heavily invest in the Green Ghana Day initiative.

 

Mr. Bossu thinks the government should rather focus on resourcing the Forestry Commission and other sectors to spearhead programmes that will promote the protection of forest covers.

 

“We believe that the government should channel these resources to the Forestry Commission and district to do their job of securing existing forests. I do not believe this fanfare is worth all the effort and the money we are putting in when on the ground at the district office there are challenges in terms of logistics,” he said on Eyewitness News.

The Green Ghana Day was introduced as part of a national afforestation and reforestation programme to restore the lost forest cover of Ghana and contribute to the global effort to mitigate climate change.

Mr. Bossu wondered why the government was pushing for the planting of some 20 million trees at a time when the government was seeking to declassify portions of the Achimota Forest Reserve.

“We chose to use the occasion to register our concern and our worry over the continuous abuse of impunity with which government which is also interested in the green Ghana agenda is actively destroying our forest reserve.”

“We believe that you cannot say you are interested in Green Ghana and then go on to destroy or rezone gazetted state forest reserves like the Achimota forest.”
