Ghana: Kofi Annan Endorses Reforestation of Africa

The replanting of forests can play a major role in achieving the climate objectives that were agreed in Paris. It is now time for investors to make a move and the 'Forests for the Future, New Forests for Africa' initiative has received the support of H.E. Mr. Kofi Annan. Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1997-2006, Mr. Annan will be the principal guest at the official launch of the Initiative on 16 and 17 March in the Ghanaian capital, Accra. “While the priority must remain on preserving our natural forests, the revival of denuded areas through reforestation helps not only Ghana but also the global fight against climate change,” said Kofi Annan, who works through the Kofi Annan Foundation to achieve a fairer, more peaceful world.
