Ghana is committed to issuing her much-anticipated FLEGT licenses in 2022 – Hon. Any Jinapor
“Ghana is committed to issuing her much-anticipated FLEGT licenses in 2022” the Minister for Lands and Natural Resources Hon. Samuel Abu Jinapor, said to EU Ambassador H.E. Irchad Razaaly, during a courtesy visit to his office in Accra today.
The EU Ambassador commended the Minister for the progress Ghana has made in recent months tackling the causes of deforestation and forest degradation, such as galamsey and the trade in rosewood.
He particularly commended the efforts made by the Forestry Commission to develop an action plan to address the outstanding issues.
He added that, once officially endorsed by the Joint Monitoring and Review Mechanism, this action plan will allow both parties to jointly declare Ghana’s timber legality assurance system readiness to issue FLEGT licenses.
