Government praised for reviewing Taungya Reforestation system
|Taungya (B/A), June 9, GNA- Nana Joseph Ackesson, Chief of Atabourso in the Techiman Municipality
has commended the government for reviewing the Taungya Reforestation System.
He said the decision by the government to offer 40 percent of the System to farmers and 40 percent to the Forestry Commission
"is a demonstration of its commitment to the well-being of farmers".
Nana Ackesson, who is the Chairman of African Reforestation Union,
which operates in Asubima forest under the Taungya system,
made the commendation in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Taungya.
He said the Union, with more than 20 farming groups and about 2,500 members located at
Offinso, Techiman and Nkoranza districts, was gratified with the government for its prompt response
to the request to modify proceeds under the System.
Nana Ackesson said the new system, which would also provide 10 percent to landowners
would encourage more farmers to engage in afforestation.
He advised members to take advantage of the rains and plant
more tree seedlings to enhance the reforestation programme.

Environmentally-Friendly NGOs support fire volunteer group with funds
Mr Agyarko-Attobrah was speaking at a ceremony at which, leaders of a Germany-based NGO, Afrika Wiederauffors Tungsverein E.V., and a sister organisation in Ghana, Africa Reforestation Union (ARU) presented four million cedis to the Awutu-Akrabong fire prevention and fire fighting group on Wednesday.
According to the two leaders, Michael Yao Tomfeah, and Mr Emmanuel K.K. Mensah, their action which followed the impressive turn-out and the great enthusiasm displayed by members of the Akrabong fire volunteer group at their recent passing out ceremony, was to motivate members of the group to protest natural forest resources in the area.
Mt Tomfeah and Mr Mensah pledged to assist members of the volunteer group to form branches of the NGOs in the community to assist in afforestation programmes in forest reserves in the area and also help introduce environmental-friendly farming practices.
On his part, the Agona District Coordinating Director, Mr G.B.L. Siilo, expressed government's appreciation to the two sister NGOs for their environmentally-friendly gesture, and advised leaders of the fire volunteer group to ensure meaningful use of the assistance to move the group forward.
Mr Siilo assured them of Agona District Assembly's preparedness to provide them with some of their working tools. Mr Bartholomew K. Nketsiah, Awutu-Effutu-Senya District Fire Officer, charged members of the group to educate people in and around Akrabong on fire prevention aspect of their work than to wait for fire disasters to occurs before exhibiting their skills and knowledge.
