CONSERVATION ALLIANCE GHANA
Conservation Alliance (CA), is a not-for-profit non-governmental environmental organization. CA brings together the people and skills needed to build Africa’s capacity to conserve biodiversity through sound science, local initiatives and good governance. CA aims at assisting fringe communities in Africa in creating economic opportunities that result in improved wildlife and habitat management, and wealthier healthier communities.
CA Ghana works with government, community groups, partners and others to ensure that best practices are followed in the use of natural resources. We do not impose solutions but work with communities to strengthen their own efforts, making the most of their knowledge and experience, to improve their access to services.
