They are Kintampo North in Brong-Ahafo, Ahafo Ano North and Ahafo Ano South in Ashanti, Tatale Sangule in Northern and Ada West in Greater Accra Regions.
He said the possibility to extend the programme to cover more districts in the country would depend on its success, and appealed to the project implementing Districts to embrace and support the programme.
« The Earth Dollar is part of a new sustainable decentralized Living Economic System centred on the preservation of natural resources of Planet Earth and revitalizing global economies », he said.
