30% Of Land Space for Building in Accra, Be Left for Greens - Mohammed Adjei Sowah

30% Of Land Space for Building in Accra, Be Left for Greens - Mohammed Adjei Sowah

The mayor of Accra, Mohammed Adjei Sowah has stated that by law, all building in the capital city Accra, are required to allot 30% of land space for greens.

Delivering keynote address at the 2021 Ghana Garden and Flower Show organized by Stratcomm Africa, a strategic communication organization at the Efua Sutherland park.

The direct impact of the sun given Ghana’s position in the tropics, highlights the need for measures to lower the its effects on lives in Accra. According to the mayor, the cutting down of trees and the effects of human activities on greens at available open spaces in the city has become worrisome.

“We live in the tropics, we have notice that the sun burns us all the time, the data available tells us that over the years heat is increasing and that is affecting our lives in Accra. Today because we are cutting down trees and encroaching on all greens and open spaces, the city is becoming a concrete jungle and heat highlands are being located within the city space,” he averred.

According to Mr. Sowah the felling of trees to make way for high rise buildings, is a major heat generating factor especially in highland areas of Accra. The Accra metropolitan (AMA) is in full support of the 2021 Ghana and Flower show for its positive impact on the environment.

“We pull down all trees and building high rise structures that are less even energy efficient to our health, enclaves is one of the heat highlands in Accra. Our association and support for this program is because we want to enhance life and embrace the environment not only to enhance the status of the city but the impact of it on the environment and climate change is the reason, we have been supporting this program over the years,” he said
