Our programmes

Programme on Gender

In Africa and many other parts of the world, women are denied equal access to and control over resources, land, credit, and income and access to services such as education and healthcare.

Programme on Forest and Biodiversity

Ghana is made up of tropical forests covering just over ten percent of the land area and mainly confined to the south-west and middle parts of the country.

Programme on Climate Change

The world is warming at a faster rate than expected, causing damage to critical species, habitats and ecosystems and disrupting food production systems.

Programme on Environmental Rights and Justice

Every one of us is inherently entitled to certain fundamental rights and freedoms as established in the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
