Africa is one of the richest continents in the world, yet it is the poorest in the world in terms of infrastructures, developments, social welfare systems, poverty, diseases, corruption, democratic elected systems, civil wars and most importantly environmental degradation and unfair distribution of national wealth and resources per capita.

With an around 3% per year growing population with stagnating livelihood for their next existence.


In Africa the ordinary folks, have to wake up in the morning, go and fetch water, collect wood from farm lands for their daily recommended allowance and consumptions.

These basic human rights, standards and necessities, which we in the western developed  world take for granted, are missing in an ordinary African household.


The majority of the population in Africa have to look for means of self employment, as there are not many major industries and employment sectors which will  provide job opportunities.

Subsequently this puts a burden on the household incomes and salaries to cater for family maintenance and children educational fees as well as healthcare cost.


Secondly lack of  sufficient power energy output and total ignorance on the use of abundant  solar energy and waste resources leads to disadvantages in  all areas.

If only Ghanaians would realize the potential in solar energy, which could be easily turned into a major  energy source to provide the necessary output for growth and development of local, regional and national economies.


At the same time having the ability to generate revenues for further investment in project and infrastructure development.

In doing so it would form the backbone of emerging  economies, industries and households within Ghana.

Currently these issues are inadequate and underrepresented in the public interest and therefore making it impossible to take a leading role in the new millennium.


What strikes me most is how come no major businessmen and women have made it

their priority to invest in alternative and renewable energy projects?

Considering the amount of sunshine output, waste and its potential benefits to businesses and communities in Ghana.


Having such under invested infrastructures and no immediate cohesive plans and solutions to resolve these major issues, it will continue to add burdens on industries,businesses and the local district councils.

Making it difficult for them to provide the adequate high quality standards and necessary services to their folks, customers, reaching their performance goals and objectives.


The necessary reforms and changes would need to be implemented and  well managed.




On the other hand there are enormous opportunities for growth in employment, agriculture, cleaner cities and affordable energy costs.

As well as revenue growth for re-investment on social, environmental friendly and sustainable projects.


These offer the possibility to secure benefits and better living standards not just for a few, but for entire communities and districts.


In order to play an effective role in this development process, we will need reliable cooperation partners, official representatives and bodies whom are also dedicated to our visions and goals for the benefit of Ghana.


Upon all these factors and burdens on the government and the population,

African countries finds themselves further more confronted with the massive problems

of waste and  recycling management and systems.
