Lands Ministry, Select Committee Review Wildlife Resources Management Bill, 2022

Lands Ministry, Select Committee Review Wildlife Resources Management Bill, 2022

The Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources and the Parliamentary Select Committee on Lands and Forestry had begun a 3-day review meeting on the Wildlife Resources Management Bill, 2022. The working session began on Tuesday, 21st June 2022. 

The CEO of the Forestry Commission, Mr. John Allotey in a brief statement on behalf of the Sector Minister, Hon. Samuel A Jinapor said the Ministry expects that the 3-day review meeting will help provide a wildlife resources management bill that can confidently be presented to the August House of Parliament for passage into law.

He said the move will also pave way for an effective wildlife resources management system for the country. When passed, the Wildlife Resources Management bill will provide the legal framework for implementing the policy on wildlife and make provisions for international agreements and conventions that Ghana has signed. It will also provide legal backing for Community engagements like the Community Resources Management Areas (CREMA), Mr. Allotey indicated.

The final review meeting being held in the Eastern regional capital, Koforidua, Stakeholders believe will bring to an end the review processes especially after receiving inputs at the recently held Stakeholder forum by the Select Committee.

Also present at the ongoing review meeting are the Technical Director, Forestry, Mr. Joseph Osiakwan, Technical Advisor on Forestry, Mr. Abu Juam, representatives from the Attorney General's office, and Officials from the Forestry Commission.
