The US will support Ghana develop stringent measures to curb environmental degradation and promote the use of clean energy, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator of the US, Michael S. Regan, has said. 

He said while illegal miners continued to strip the land bare in search of precious minerals, there was a responsibility to protect the environment for the sake of sustainability, hence the decision of the US government to strengthen Ghana’s capacity to reduce degradation and promote the use of clean energy such as solar from sunshine which is abound in the country all year round.


Mr Regan, who is the first African American to be appointed Administrator of the EPA, was speaking when he visited the Du Bois Centre in Accra after his earlier visit to Mozambique, in what was his first official visit to Africa.

He was accompanied by the President and CEO of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Derrick Johnson.
