Ghanaian Former President Calls for Donor Support to Fight Climate Change

Former President John Agyekum Kufour has said donors and the public should play a major role in assisting businesses fight climate change and environmental degradation. The ex-president, who was speaking at the World Bank Group launch of the Climate Innovation Centre to support Ghana's green economy in Accra on Wednesday May 17, indicated that: “If we are seeking green solutions to fight the impact of climate change which is global, I believe public policy, donor community support, as well as private venturists should share the risk of investment to transition from fossil fuels to green energy.” The centre is a technology hub designed to help over 100 local clean technology businesses develop and commercialise innovative solutions to climate change.
