What is Accra Pictures by Day and Night?

Accra is the capital of the small, West African country of Ghana, which achieved its independence in 1957 from its colonial master, the United Kingdom. It celebrated 50 years in 2007, and is projecting itself fast and furiously as "gateway to West Africa".

It's an exciting city, with its unique problems, but with it close to the Atlantic ocean, and many beaches, who can resist coming here?

Ghanaians Smoking Out 2009, or Displaying Supreme Ignorance?

In the wake of the cacophony in 2009 over climate change, this picture, striking me as a paradox at first, immediately gives way to a feeling that not quite everyone got the whole picture on global warming, and frankly, not everyone was going to!

Although the incumbent government has done some work on promoting the planting of trees, its communication is challenged by the dynamics of a country that sometimes seems over-obsessed with politics.

I cannot help but wonder how scenes like these remain a very stark reminder of the ignorance of a large part of Ghanaians on how to tackle climate change.

A news report in the Ghanaian media claims this:

In her quest towards mitigating climate change, Ghana would in January 2010, begin an ambitious nationwide aforestation project that also seeks to bridge the unemployment gap confronting the country.

Climate change effects are already wrecking lives in Ghana, and the rest of the African continent. It is seriously having a rippling effect on the people, especially those in rural communities where various streams serving as a source of drinking water have dried up, because of lack of trees to serve as a cover for these waterbodies.

The Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, the body that regulates and enact policies for the country’s natural resources and forest reserves, will launch a National Forest Plantation Development Program (NFPDP) in January, to avert the declining trend of its forest reserve.

Let us keep our eyes peeled for this government initiative!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!!
