Mr. Agyare continued that the result areas has two phases, of which the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) handles result area 1 of the project to ensure that local economies are stimulated and short term opportunities are created for especially women, the youths and returning migrants through providing climate-resilient infrastructure like the beautiful Hotopo market under construction.
The result area 2 is also focused on providing life skills development support for Cash-for-work beneficiaries.
The MCE said this is the second phase of implementing the GrEEN Project in Ahanta West Municipality, and he is extremely delighted that Hotopo, his hometown, was selected for phase 2 of this project.
