Ghana is known for its diverse animal life, miles of sandy beaches along a picturesque coast, and beautiful forests covering more than 21% of the country. Since the early 1990s, Ghana has lost more than 30% of its forests – approximately 2.5 million hectares. With a remarkable 80% of Ghanaians depending on forests for their livelihoods, deforestation has a major impact on communities. To reverse this trend, Ghana’s government is focused on improving land management, planting trees, and protecting forests. This project is also a part of the AFR100, an initiative to restore more than 100 million hectares of land across Africa by 2030.
