President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will, on October 1, launch the Ghana National Plastic Action Partnership (GNPAP) and the Waste Recovery Platform to ensure comprehensive management of plastic waste for sustainable development.
The unveiling of the GNPAP will be done in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to promote sustainable waste recovery in the country by connecting stakeholders across the plastic waste management value chain.
Ghana and Indonesia are the two countries in the world selected by the World Economic Forum to pilot plastic waste management under the Global Plastic Action Partnership, which will serve as a model for the rest of the world.
Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Information Minister, announced this at the mid-week media briefing in Accra.
