Operational shake-up at Forestry Commission

The Forestry Commission has undergone a structural change as a result of the transfer of all sixteen regional managers from the Forest Services Division.

Hugh C. Brown, the executive director of the Forest Services Division, has also been transferred to serve as the minister of lands and natural resources' advisor on forestry.

The adjustments are in keeping with the government's strategy to maintain the Forestry Commission's vitality and concentration, especially the Forest Services Division, which supports the government's flagship afforestation and reforestation program.

The proper management and utilization of forest resources is another goal. Ghana's forest resources are developed, safeguarded, and managed by the Forest Services Division.

It is also in charge of expanding forest plantations and controlling how forest resources are harvested. Ghana's forest resources are being rapidly depleted, which is a serious problem.

In an intensive restoration and afforestation campaign to help replace the country's lost forest cover and slow climate change, the government introduced the Green Ghana Project in 2021.

The reassignment of Mr. Brown to the Ministry as an Advisor to the Minister is to ensure that the Ministry follows through with its aggressive afforestation and reforestation programme.

Mr. Brown is said to have enormous experience in forest plantation, having served as the Director of Operations for Plantation at the Forestry Commission before being appointed as the Executive Director of the Forest Services Division.

The Forestry Commission reports that on the first Green Ghana Day, over seven million trees were planted, and on the second Green Ghana Day in 2022, over 20 million trees were planted.
