ghana's reducing carbon emissions

Ghana’s President Nana Addo Dankwa Afuko-Addo said that the country is aiming to reduce its carbon emissions by 64 million tonnes by 2030.


Whilst giving a speech at the national tree planting day commemoration, the president highlighted the need to address the drivers of deforestation and forest degradation to lessen the environmental impacts. These drivers include agriculture, illegal mining, illegal logging and wildfires.


Through these activities Ghana aims to reduce its carbon emissions by 64 millions tonnes by 2030.


“We shall continue to deepen our resilience and adapt to climate change by improving early warning systems, promoting climate-resilient agriculture, restoring degraded lands, and protecting coastal zones to achieve our vision of becoming a low-carbon and climate resilient country” said the president.
