7:11 munites-Daniel Kweitsu Obloni
In collaboration with the Forestry Commission and support from the “Living Water from the Mountain” project partners as well as community farmers, A Rocha Ghana is facilitating the rehabilitation of degraded portions of the Atewa Forest Reserve used as farmlands by replanting economic timber species. Over 20, 000 indigenous tree species including: Emire (Terminalia ivorensis), Ofram (Terminalia superba), Ceiba (Ceiba pentandra), and Mahogany (Khaya ivorensis) which were nursed in three farming communities (Dompim, Osafo and Titikaso) have been transported for planting at identified degraded areas. This is part of consented efforts to secure the ecological integrity of the forest reserve under the Living Water From the Mountain project.
