Alliance of Civil Society Organization for Clean Energy Access (ACCESS) (ACCESS) has engaged the World Bank and the Africa Development Bank (AfDB) in a consultative dialogue on Ghana’s economic and environmental needs.
At the meeting, the Coordinator of Strategic Youth Network for Development (SYND), Mr. Ezikiel Chibeze stated that SYND which is the regional secretariat of ACCESS is ready to work with other civil society groups to educate and involve Ghanaians through Ghana’s education career curriculum.
Mrs. Faustina Boakye, a member of the coordinating committee explained that climate change which is a vital part of learning in schools must be rigorously taught by teachers who are trained to understand the significance of climate change as it affects Ghana.
Mr. Beganim Maxwell, a member of the SYND working group team announced that Ghana’s economy will benefit immensely from the Bank of Ghana’s efforts to progress the business climate and stimulate private sector involvement in the industrial sector.
Access believes that Ghana is en route to becoming a regional financial hub through improved market interconnection through regional infrastructure. It seeks to support infrastructure that is an enabler of domestic, regional, and global trade. With the help of funds from Banks like the African development bank, the construction of multimodal transportation networks such as roads, ports, and rails would be established.
These systems Access reckons will boost connection both within the nation as well as across its borders.
Access through the strategic youth network for development is open for collaboration between students and universities to factor conversations around students’ needs. Access is doing underground work to connect the student body of Ghana through organized seminars and conferences
