The plans to increase Ghana’s energy mix include the construction of small and medium hydropower dams, solar power for domestic use, biomass and waste energy.

Mr. Amewu said there are also plans to promote renewable energy among off grid communities including Island communities.

According to the sector Minister, undoubtedly, good policies requires good research inputs from experienced researchers, saying the development of the human capital is an intangible asset which will optimize the policy decisions taken by government.

Touching on the agricultural sector, Mr. Amewu noted that due to several challenges, including good research findings to inform decision making, Ghana’s fish stocks are currently overcapitalized and overfished leading to significant losses in rent.

This he said has deepened poverty in fishing communities.

Furthermore he said, due to the loopholes in the Ghana’s fisheries regulations coupled with inadequate enforcement of catch rules, have created opportunities for foreign vessels to plunder Ghana’s fisheries with very little benefit to Ghanaians who often front as owner’s to these fishing vessels.
