Launch of Achimota Eco-Park Project
Posted: 27 May 2010

M Plaza Hotel, Accra 27-July-2010  9 A.M.
The Achimota Eco-Park concept provides a great opportunity for eco-tourism and environmentally-friendly, money-churning venture worthy of enacting. This pursuit, however, requires that the Achimota Forest is transform from its current subsistence state. As the Acting Chief Executive of the Forestry Commission, Mr. Samuel Afari Dartey reasons: “We should change the outlook of the Achimota Forest from its current status into a world-class eco-tourism enclave, from a traditional forest reserve into an ecological impact, tapping experiences from other countries, such as Kenya, Namibia and South Africa.”

In point of fact, the Achimota project is well-aligned and in rhythm with the fundamental mandate of the Forestry Commission (FC), which enjoins it to manage and develop the forest and wildlife resources and oversee and regulate the timber industry in Ghana. The Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources is patently lucid on its commitment to the success of the Project. “It is a very laudable idea and fits into government development plans. It is going to create lot of jobs, enhance revenue generation and most importantly, it is going to help protect the land under reservation at Achimota. The government will do everything possible to support this project to succeed,” the Sector Minister, Honourable Alhaji Collins Dauda has pledged.
