COP 21: Ghana joins Great Green Wall initiative

Ghana has written to join the Great Green Wall (GGW) initiative to help halt land degradation in the three regions of the north.

Experts are expected to hold further discussions with the Minister of Environment, Science and Innovation (MESTI) soon after the climate change talks currently ongoing in the French capital of Paris.

The Great Green Wall is an initiative by a former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo in 2005 to help green the continent from west to east in order to battle land degradation and its associated erosion.

As of now, 12 countries form the Great Green Wall

The Coordinator for the project, Dr Elvis Paul a Nfor Tangem told Graphic Online in Paris that a team of experts will visit Ghana by the end of this year to hold further discussions with the MESTI, and visit the Northern, Upper East and Upper West regions which will benefit from the project.
