Back in Court

Renew Our World Ghana's Atewa Forest case resumes

The court case against the government of Ghana for its plans to turn Atewa Range Forest Reserve into a bauxite mine pit resumes on Tuesday, April 18, 2023. 

Atewa Forest is a critical watershed providing water for over 5 million Ghanaians, home to several rare species such as the Atewa Slippery Frog, and a vital absorber of carbon to protect the world's climate.

Please pray

Please pray for the court to overturn the plans, and for our friends A Rocha Ghana, who are the Renew Our World national expression in Ghana, as they play a leading role in the case. 

The case was filed at the High Court of General Jurisdiction in Ghana in 2020, by seven NGOs and their networks numbering over 90 individual NGOs and four private citizens who sued the Government of Ghana over the intended plan.

Here's their update from March, last time the case was in court.
