Green Ghanaian Initiatives (GGI) Road Show – Kumasi Edition @ HapaSpace

The average Ghanaian is bereft of any knowledge of climate change and global warming. There is therefore, the need for concerted global and regional efforts in addressing this problem because of its transboundary nature. There is an urgent need to expedite action in building a firm, legal and institutional framework to address these challenges of adaptation and mitigation.
