Canada commits $17.5 million to green entrepreneurship

The Canadian Government has announced funding support of 17.5 million Canadian dollars to Ghana’s green economy and green entrepreneurship.

Minister of International Development and Minister responsible for the Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada, Harjit Sajjan announced this at a reception held for him at Ashesi University’s Ghana Climate Innovation Centre (GCIC) in Accra.

He explained that the decision to fund is “because the climate change crisis is another pandemic that we all must deal with”.

Hon. Harjit Sajjan added that “no country in the world, not even Canada or the United States of America (USA) can fight this global crisis alone”.

According to him, the fight against climate change is a collective responsibility hence the need for all hands to be on deck.
