Ghana’s cabinet has approved the conversion of all 156 extant timber concessions and permits into Timber Utilization Contracts (TUC), after years of advocacy for same by Tropenbos Ghana.
As part of efforts to reclaim farmlands that have been destroyed by small scale mining activities, Tropenbos Ghana and A Rocha Ghana with funding from Norad have engaged community members in the Amansie West district to restore mined-out areas.
On the occasion of International Day of Forests, Tropenbos Ghana and pupils from five selected schools in the Bia West District - Western North Region embarked on a walk to raise awareness on the need to preserve Ghana’s forest reserves. The selected schools were Lamplighter, Bia National Park, Debiso A, B, and C Junior High Schools. The procession was along principal streets in Debiso, a community within the district.
