He said, in spite of the many benefits derived from the forest, the forest and wildlife resources of Ghana continue to face serious threats of degradation and deforestation due to factors such as illegal logging, illegal mining (Galamsey), unsustainable farming practices, and collection of fuel wood in commercial quantities, among others.

 

 

The results of these are severe climate change impacts that have resulted in the drying up of many water bodies in most communities across the country.
