The DCE made the call on Friday, June 9, 2023 at the forecourt of the Atwima Kwanwoma District Assembly when observing this year’s Green Ghana Day under the theme “Greening Ghana: Our Forest, Our Health, urging all to take the project serious to enhance healthy living.
He stressed that, the current experience of climate change is a great threat to sustainable environment and development because of its great adverse impact on humans, adding that, it is as a result of environmental degradation which is demonstrated in the case of our dear country by the alarming rate at which the country’s forest cover has been depleted over the years due to human activities.
HON. PRINCE KARIKARI PLANTING A ROYAL PALM TREE
Mr. Karikari shared an instance where trees are planted on high rise buildings, advising Ghanaians to replicate such habits once the country is blessed with rich soil that all kind of tress could be planted to mitigate the increasing environmental degradation.
He admonished heads of various schools to use the opportunity to plant more trees on their school lands to beautify the environment and as well protect the said lands for the schools. “The assembly is determined to keep track and monitor all the trees that are going to be planted to see how they will go across the district, he said.
According to the District Forest Manager, Mr. Edward Nyamaa, advised all to embrace the project and give it the maximum support because plants serve as food and medicine in our daily lives and goes a long way to cool down the environment.
He said the forestry commission was determined to recover the depleted forest cover, ravaged by negative human activities such as illegal mining and other related activities. He called for a collective action by schools, churches and all well-meaning citizens to join forces to plant the 10 thousand trees that was allocated to the district. The action, he said, would help the “Green Ghana” and preserve the ecosystem to aid the fight against the negative effects of climate change nationwide. SOURCE;SAMUEL ANTWI ISD
