Join us in our mission to restore our natural resources
Friends of the Earth Ghana was founded in 1986 and joined the membership of Friends of the Earth International (FoEI) the world’s largest grassroots environmental network uniting 73 autonomous environmental organizations from all over the world. FoE-Ghana is a national non-governmental organization working in all the regions of Ghana.
Our organization has actively participated in various initiatives aimed at promoting sustainable environmental governance. Through close collaboration with local communities and civil society organizations, we have been able to ensure that environmental resources are managed in an inclusive and sustainable manner. Our efforts have resulted in the implementation of policies and programs that support responsible resource use and conservation, and have led to positive impacts on the environment and the communities that depend on it.
This project focuses on local community capacity building and awareness raising, media awareness raising, coalitions and networking with Civil Society Organisations and social media advocacy to be able to mobilise public support for campaigning against the drivers of deforestation and to also contribute to public discourse on sustainable governance of forest landscapes.
Recognizing the benefits that mangrove re-establishment will bring, we have initiated a two-year community-driven project, “Keta-Anlo Mangrove Restoration Initiative (KAMRI)” to restore degraded mangroves in the Keta-Anlo landscape. We are initially rolling out the planting of 110 hectares of degraded mangroves, which is expected to be completed by 2024.
Funded by the Commonwealth Foundation in the UK, this project is increasing women farmers’ capacities to advocate and lobby policy makers for participation in agricultural and environmental policy and decision making that will help them adapt to the environmental and climate change impacts they are experiencing.
