President Akufo-Addo, The Ghana Catholic Bishops Conference, and Ghanaians at large have joined forces to plant trees to mark green Ghana.
different species of seedlings have been made available, already distributed to the 16 regions of the country as part of preparations for the Green Ghana project.
WHY PLANT TREES
The UN 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP21) set the stage for humanity to do more on forests to eliminate deforestation and also drive the effort for reforestation.
Restoring 350 million hectares of degraded land with trees by 2030 and reducing deforestation rates by half in the next 15 years will help keep global temperatures under 2 C increase.
The devastating effects of Galamsey (Illegal Mining) menace on the environment especially the destruction of large tracks of forest belt for illegal gold mining makes the Green Republic call even more justifiable and pressing for Ghanaians especially the youth.
