Ghana: Climate Change Resilience for Farmers at Lake Bosumtwe

Planting 10,000 trees, learning how to produce biochar, the “black gold” for the soil, or trainings on plantain production are some of the activities of the project “Securing Climate Change Resilience and Mitigation by building Self-reliant Smallholder Farmers within the Lake Bosumtwe Landscape”.

The 20-month project is implemented in eight communities from two districts of the Ashanti Region in Ghana. The main objective of the Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+) project, implemented by A Rocha Ghana with support from the CSIR-Crop Research Institute, is to support farmers in the Lake Bosumtwe Landscape to become self-reliant in securing Climate Change resilience and mitigation.

The project will develop and pilot a resilience framework for local action planning capacities and methodologies to increase climate change resilience through joint learning, planning and testing by stakeholders in demonstration sites in the Lake Bosomtwe catchment.

It is expected that at the end of the project 10,000 trees would have been planted.
