“His Majesty the King is well known for his lifelong commitment to addressing climate change. Ghana, like many other countries, has been affected by climate change, characterised by unpredictable weather patterns, rising sea levels, and temperatures, including recent dam spillage that has displaced over 40,000 people in the Volta region; to which the UK has committed an initial amount of £250,000 to support.

“But Ghana is demonstrating leadership in the climate space through its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) initiated as part of The Paris Agreement at COP21. The recent commitment to establish the Vulnerable twenty (V20) secretariat in Ghana, launch of the Ghana Energy Transition and Investment Plan, protection of marine life, forest conservation, and climate smart agriculture practices including in the cocoa sector are testament to Ghana’s commitment.

“To GREAT Campaign proudly supporting us, our gold sponsors, Aqua Africa and Stanbic Bank and all other sponsors, I extend my heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support. Your commitment fuels our success, and we are honoured to have you as dedicated partners in our journey.
