Ghana’s forest cover is fast depleting from human activities due to illegal mining (galamsey) and logging. GII has partnered with key stakeholders to undertake annual tree-planting exercises across the country where there is forest depletion. Over 20,000 trees have been planting in various communities.
Clean & renewable energy
The rising cost of LPG has led to a rise in the use of charcoal for home and industrial purposes. Our work focuses on the use of renewable solar lamps and recycled charcoal bricks among others. Through advocacy and direct project implementation, we have piloted these projects and will implement them on a large scale.
This strand of work focuses on before-and-after activities as part of Ghana’s disaster management strategies.
