A call for innovative project proposals to address unsustainable Biomass fuel (Firewood and Charcoal) production in the Mole Ecological Landscape through Climate Smart Business ideas is now open. The deadline to submit a proposal is August 12. Apply through the link below.
Today, we launch the first episode of our brand new Mobilising more for climate podcast, as part of our Green Finance Academy. Our goal is to bring powerful voices and stories from the frontline of nature conservation into the world of finance.
In August 2021, A Rocha Ghana and partners opened a call for Climate-smart Green Business initiatives that build climate change resilience and achieve landscape restoration by reducing firewood and Charcoal production related deforestation and improve access to renewable biomass energy.
Training and consultations sessions have since been held for finalists of the MoMo4C Business Call. The participants were also privileged to go on an exchanged visit to Zaacoal Limited―a renewable energy company which produces clean, long burning and high heat charcoal from coconut waste.
A Rocha Ghana produced a video about their visit to Zaacoal Limited.
After a seven-month intensive scrutiny of proposals and applications, we are happy to announce that Tai Pana Limited, a sole proprietorship enterprise has won first place in the maiden edition of the Mobilising More for Climate (MoMo4C) Business Call targeted at the Mole Ecological Landscape in the Savannah Region of Ghana.
