FoE Ghana: Mobilizing Local Action Against the Keta Oil Block Project
FoE Ghana is working on Ghana’s Keta Oil Block Project and its threat to the Keta Lagoon Complex Ramsar Site. They have built on their campaign by holding a media briefing to create awareness of the project. This was a start of the work on the Just Recovery Media Network that is dedicated to promoting environmental, social, gender, economic justice and sustainable recovery.
Another key event was a CSO meeting to create awareness of the oil project. The CSO Forum is important to mobilize key stakeholders and to build networks. This meeting included participation from a number of key CSOs in Ghana including: Centre for Natural Resources and Environmental Management (CNREM), Abibiman Foundation, Young Volunteers for Environment, Friends of the Nation, AbibiNsoroma, OilWatch Ghana and GROC (350.org).
