Religious groups are becoming active in promoting understanding and action in response to climate change worldwide. In Ghana, the EP Church is a leading religious organisation working in the climate and environment sector. The church provides information and education to enable rural communities whose main occupation is food crop production animal keeping. It also executes projects under its climate and environment programmes.
Presently the church has projects going on, in parts of northern Ghana to help communities and rural peasant farmers who depend mainly on rainfall to water their crops to adapt to climatic changes. In the video below, a project officer of the church describes one of the projects on adaptation, mitigation and sustainable livelihood in the Saboba area in the north.
