SWMA HOLDS STAKEHOLDERS’ ENGAGEMENT AS IT BENEFITS FROM GHANA LANDSCAPE RESTORATION PROJECT EXPANSION PROGRAMME


The Ghana Landscape Restoration and Small Scale Mining Project is a project funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), PROGREEN and the World Bank. It objective is to strengthen integrated landscape management formalization of artisanal and small scale mining and increase benefit to communities in the target degraded Savannah and Cocoa Forest Area.


The landscape restoration focuses on restoring degraded landscapes in selected Districts in the Northern Savannah and Transitional Ecological Zones and that of Cocoa Forest Zones (Ashanti, Central, Eastern and Bono East) of Ghana.


The project is Multi-Agency and interdisciplinary in nature. It is in its third year of implementation and the Government of Ghana has secured additional funding from Global Environmental Facility to include two additional Districts in the Western North Region.


The project's primary objective is to restore degraded lands within the targeted regions. It also aims to support communities cultivate cocoa, maize, and encourage aquaculture. This involves providing logistical support and empowering communities to solve their problems.


A concept proposal is needed for submission to the donor partners for approval to secure additional funding to include the two identified Districts from Western North Region.


The project’s operational area is within the Pra River Basin. Sefwi Wiawso and Bibiani Anhwianso Bekwai Municipal Assembly are selected despite the river's absence in the region because they are identified within the river’s basin.
