The summer edition of AKADi is out and features articles from Ghanaians in the Motherland and diaspora about how they are shaping, promoting and transforming views on sustainability in Ghana.
In this issue hear from activist groups Eco-Conscious Citizens Ghana and A Rocha Ghana that are challenging the government’s plans for a state-run Chinese business to explore for bauxite in the Atewa Range Forest Reserve.
The deal is expected to finance $2 billion worth of rail, road and bridge networks for Ghana, according to CNBC.
