INTRODUCTION:Ghanaians have, over many years, been exploring biological resources with traditional approach.This has led to underutilisation,and with profound environmental impacts reflected by depleted biological resources without meeting a decent means of living.
It is in the light of this we published this article to attract potential investors with the mindset of providing employment, conserving Ghanaians biological resources,and earning a huge returns and revenues from investment.
Increasing human population and poverty in Ghana,especially in the northern region, have dramatically accelerated the depletion of biological resources,ranging from forest trees to farming practices that overexploit soil fertility to extinction of marine resources.
UNITED NATION incentive programs and including those initiated by the government of Ghana were proposed to mitigate the impacts of communities activities on biological resources, but still have not done significantly at lessening the deliberate exploitation of biological resources in Ghana.And the only way to go about this problem is to create awareness for foreign investors who might be interested in investing in agric sector or lumbering in Ghana.
