EBAFOSE in Ghana Calls for All-Inclusive Climate Action
March 8, 2017
The Ecosystem Based Adaptation for Food Security Assembly (EBAFOSA), Ghana, called for an all-inclusive climate action towards food security in Ghana.
Dr John Boateng, the President of EBAFOSA, said climate change had been undermining the future of the Ghanaian economy through agriculture; adding that Ghana was highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
Climate change, he said, was destroying the livelihood of many people and contributing towards unemployment because it had made agriculture an unattractive and expensive occupation now.
Speaking at a media conference on climate change, in Accra, Dr Boateng said Ghana’s vulnerability to Ghana climate change was held in its economy being mainly dependent on natural resources and rain-fed agriculture, which were very sensitive to climate change.
