To help improve the ecological system of Ghana, through forestation, reforestation and tree-growing, and in commemoration of this year’s International Day of Forests, a campaign dubbed: ‘One Man, One Tree’ was, yesterday, launched in Accra.

The occasion, which was organized by the Forestry Commission (FC) in collaboration with the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, formed part of activities marking this year’s Forestry Week celebrations.

The celebrations, the fourth in a series, started with an inter-school quiz competition dubbed: ‘Catch Them Young’, which aimed to test the knowledge of the students on forestry issues and to sensitize the youth, as future policy makers, on the need to act responsibly to protect the forests.

Achimota Senior High School (SHS) emerged winners in the competition in which, Amasaman Technical High School, Ghanatta SHS and Presbyterian Boys SHS participated.

Other activities lined up for the celebration are a National Colloquium on Forests Investment Opportunities and Climate Change and a Workshop on Legal Education on Forests and Wildlife.

The celebration will be climaxed with a Grand Durbar and Greening Ghana Day.

The Forestry Week celebrations were launched in Ghana in 2011, pursuant to the UN Resolution on the establishment of the International Day of Forests and in consonance with the Government of Ghana’s ‘Greening Ghana Agenda’.

In an address to launch the ‘One Man, One Tree’ campaign, the Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Hon. Nii Osa Mills, pledged the support of the Ministry to the FC in the discharge of its mandate.

The Chief Executive of FC, Mr Samuel Afari Dartey, in a statement, reiterated the commitment of FC to implementing the US $ 300 million Achimota Eco-Park project to transform the Achimota forest into a world-class eco-tourism enclave, such as found in Kenya, Namibia and South Africa, to provide a great opportunity for eco-tourism and for revenue generation.

Mr Dartey, however, expressed regrets that the Plantation Development Project of FC had stalled due to lack of funds and appealed to government to intervene to help revive the project.

For his part, the Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of FC, Mr Eddie Prah, gave the assurance that the FC was ready to provide the leadership required to help sustain what was left of Ghana’s forest cover and to increase the tree cover of the country.

Mr Andy Osei Okrah, Chairman of the Planning Committee of the celebrations, urged Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Community-based Organizations (CBOs), Corporate entities, the general public and the media to support the ‘One Man, One Tree campaign to succeed in order to increase the nation’s forest cover for a healthy ecosystem.

The International Day of Forests, which is celebrated on March 21 of every year, is an annual event instituted by the United Nations General Assembly on November 28, 2012. 

The Resolution (A/RES/67/200) that instituted the Day encouraged all Member States to organize national celebrations and activities relating to all types of forests, including, but not limited to tree-planting and other community-level and social media outreach events.

This year’s International Day of the Forests, was celebrated on the theme: ‘Healthy Forests mitigate Climate Change’

The theme was chosen to highlight the ways in which forests and climate change are linked, rally global support for greater action and change within nations, and to provide a public platform to heighten awareness about the importance of all types of forests and trees outside forests.
