Dr. Joseph Siaw Agyepong, JGC Chairman, emphasized the focus on technical, financial, and developmental aspects. He lauded EKI’s expertise in climate change, calling them the perfect partner for this venture.

 

“We chose EKI for their experience,” Dr. Agyepong stated, “so they can guide us and drive strong development in the sector.” He further announced 10 scholarships this year for individuals pursuing climate change studies, demonstrating JGC’s commitment to nurturing future leaders in this field.

Witnessing the ceremony, Dr. Henry Kokofu, Executive Director of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), praised the collaboration as a significant milestone for Ghana’s global climate change visibility. He applauded JGC’s initiative and leadership in leveraging opportunities in this critical space.

 

“This is a testament to President Akufo-Addo’s commitment to private sector participation in climate change,” Dr. Kokofu remarked, commending JGC for taking the lead in an area where others hesitate.
