Living water from the Mountain - Protecting Atewa Water Resources

The provision of clean and reliable water and a range of other ecological services provided by Atewa forest are threatened by illegal logging, illegal artisanal gold mining, land clearance for farming and illegal hunting. Another major threat is posed by incentives for large scale industrial bauxite mining in the reserve.

The project “Living water from the Mountain - Protecting Atewa Water Resources” is being initiated to address challenges facing the Atewa forest reserve and its water resources.

On behalf of A Rocha Ghana and its partners, you are hereby invited to the project launch.
