The project is targeted to reforest about 20,000 Hectares of land in Damango –Northern Ghana - within the next 10 years. 200,000 trees will be planted each year on 2 000ha of land. As a result, a total of 2 000 000 trees will be planted by the end of 2034. The selected varieties of trees to be planted are Mango and Cashew. The project is expected to commence in the year 2024 and run through to 2034.
The project is design in the fulfilment of many SDG indicators in particular the Sustainable Development Goal 15 which aims to “protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss”, and related SDG goals.
The project is intended to immortalise the actions of the former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and as an added bonus a dedicated musieum will be erected in the Green village.

Benefits of Groasis Waterbox

The technology offers a significant economic and social impact for developing and developed countries. The technology is also primarily applied for the restoration of dry regions which have had their water bodies, vegetation and wildlife, lost through degradation. The technology further offers some natural, social and economic value through the restored vegetative climate. It is especially useful in desert, arid and semi-arid climates where it is virtually impossible to successfully plant without using (drip) irrigation which requires large quantities of water and energy.
