Tony Mensah Abrampah, Country Director for Praxis Africa, has said Ghana must achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDS) Goal 6 at all cost.
Goal 6 touches on access to safe water and sanitation, as well as sound management of freshwater ecosystems by 2030.
Speaking on the Ghana Yensom show on Accra 100.5FM on Wednesday, October 11 Mr Abrampah stated that at this level of Ghana’s development, people should not be told to keep their environment clean.
“At this moment we shouldn’t be told not to litter our environment,” he said.
He added that Praxis Africa will be launching a campaign next week to sensitise the Ghanaian public on the attainment of the SGD Goal 6.
The sensitisation, he said, would be started in some parts of the capital and then spread to other parts of the country.
“We are starting in Accra, and we are focusing on five areas including Ablekuma West, Ablekuma Central, Ablekuma South, Ododiodioo.
“We are also collaborating with international bodies who have the technology to filter water in order to prevent cholera, Guinea worm and other diseases. We will continue to create the awareness until we achieve the desired results,” he said.
