THE Strategic Action Land Development plan being embarked upon by the Ahanta West District Assembly, in collaboration with the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), would soon be implemented.

Consequently, the KWAAK Environmental Studies and Policy Research Institute (KWAAK ESPRI), which won the contract from the Korean government to embark on strategic planning development in the Ahanta West District, has presented its inception report to the Assembly.

The presentation of the inception report forms the basis of the implementation of the entire project.

The Strategic Action Land Planning of the District, which has been endorsed by the Korean government, has seen the latter vote a total amount of $1.5 million for the programme.

Present at the presentation of the inception report, were the District Chief Executive (DCE) of the assembly, Mr. Joseph Jones Amoah, the District Coordinating Director, Mr. Zakariah Alhassan, staff of the assembly, and the Counselor of the Korean Embassy in Ghana.

At the presentation of the inception report by the KWAAK ESPRI, the leader of the delegation, Dr. Kwaak, observed that the threats that permeated his report were strategies for responsible growth, responsible preservation and family happiness.

He said the mission of his report responded to current opportunities for growth, and to help establish programmes and systems for land planning.

The project output, Dr. Kwaak observed, would include a District Development Plan on a whole area, research, selection and evaluation of new town development.

He also identified the weakness of the district, in terms of strategic land development, as lack of planned infrastructure, limited means of transportation, and poor waste management, resulting in limited revenue.
