-The CITI FM Heritage Caravan Story
By Kofi AKPABLI
THE CITI Heritage Caravan ended with the feeling among participants that it came to an end too soon.

AN environmental buzzword, ‘Water is Life’ has been used to describe how essential water is to the sustenance of life. It is also common knowledge that mining is a major contributor to water and environmental pollution.
Mining operations destroy both surface and ground water. Among the human activities that threaten water, mining is counted as most common casualty of water.
GHANA now has in place a “Drinking Water Quality Management Framework,” (DWQMF) that has adopted the risk-based approached as the foundation to managing the quality of drinking water in the country.
It is an integrated system of approaches and procedures that address the key factors governing drinking water quality and safety; and provides a risk management method, which is comprehensive from catchment to consumer.

THE on-going shake-up within Ghana’s natural resources sector is now peaking, with Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) much more emboldened to demand accountability of entities operating within that area.

DEVELOPMENT seems a daunting task for many developing countries. No one disputes the fact that developing a nation comes with its own difficulties; however, if the right approach is adopted with leadership having the will and the desire to see real improvement in the lives of the citizenry, the process of development should be a delightful activity.
The God factor
By Mary Ama Kudom-Agyemang
ALMOST a fortnight ago, on Wednesday March 22nd, Ghana joined the international community to celebrate World Water Day. The focus was on raising general awareness of the potential of waste water or sewage as a resource, which if properly handled will immensely benefit nations.
Fact is, as society uses more water, the demand on natural water resources is becoming greater. And aspects of this increasing demand for water, especially for agriculture and aqua-culture, can be met by reusing properly treated sewage.

IT has been a week since I first stepped foot into Accra, and despite an eye-opening introduction to ‘trotros’, bustling market places filled with any number of distinct aromas, and discovering one of my new favourite dishes in ‘jollof rice’; I had yet to experience anything truly confronting.
