FoE Ghana Project Activities
Under the Frontline Resistance to Oil and Gas and Coordinated Campaigning for Climate Justice and Just Energy Transformation for Africa project, FoE Ghana uses several actions that concur to reaching the project’s objective which is to prevent new oil and gas infrastructure projects and accelerate a movement for climate justice and a just energy transition across Africa. This is being carried out through its national project entitled : Mobilizing local action against the keta oil block project in ghana
The project aims at building a Civil Society-Community Coalition to lobby and advocate against onshore oil and gas exploitation in the Keta oil Block and to pursue an environmental, social, gender, economic justice and sustainable recovery from COVID 19 in Ghana.
