The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Accra decided to use the reception in celebration of its national day, King's Day, to echo the reforestation message of the New Forests for Africa-conference by 'reforesting' the garden of the Ambassador's residence with 500 seedlings from Form Ghana.
Form Ghana engages in a tree planting and education program with six Ghanaian schools during May and June 2016 . Form Ghana’s development team assisted Accra schools in planting indigenous tree seedlings to create awareness and greening Ghana.
For the first time, the Nuffic Tailor Made Training on ‘Sustainable commercial reforestation management’ has been provided at Form Ghana’s training centre in Berekum. 32 young professionals working at Form Ghana Ltd. or at related institutes in Ghana, Togo, and Sierra Leone, have been trained in the field of reforestation management.
Form international and Form Ghana are working on a new approach to ensure further sustainable growth, expansion and consolidation of the Public Private Partnership in Ghana and to restore forest functions in degraded forest areas and safeguard the sector’s economic importance for the future by planting 20,000 hectares/year of new forest over the next 25 years.
