On the 18th and 19th of November, 2013, over 150 delegates met at the Coconut Grove Regency Hotel, in an International Summit to Save Atewa Range Forest Reserve under the theme '“ATEWA FOREST, A HERITAGE AT A CROSS ROAD, WHAT FUTURE?”
The two-day summit brought together delegates from local communities, local government authorities, traditional leaders, civil society groups, scientists, faith-based institutions, media agencies, representatives of state departments in the water, forestry and minerals sector, development partners, diplomatic missions, practitioners and development professionals from Ghana and abroad. Also present at the Summit was the Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Hon Alhaji Inusah Fuseini, who delivered the Keynote Address.
The delegates have reached a consensus and A Rocha Ghana together with members of CONAMA will be presenting the final Communique to the Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Hon Alhaji Inusah Fuseini.
This is only the beginning of our long standing commitment to see Atewa Range Forest Reserve becomes a National Park. Of course we cannot do this without public support and also the affirmed support of all state and non-state agencies.
No action towards saving Atewa is too small...
Together Caring for God's Creation.
