The AIE Project (Ghana) has been launched, concluding the 3rd Annual HempTech Conference in Accra. The Advocacy, Implementation and Education (AIE) Project is the collaborative efforts of the Rastafari Council of Ghana (RCG), The Cooperative Executive Management Team (CEMT) and the International Cannabis Company (ICC).
Thus, the AIE Project team are looking for relevant stakeholders and partners for a proposal for services for several African countries for creation and implementation of institutional frameworks for the cannabis and hemp industry across Africa.
They will take public comment every Friday live on Zoom for the month of August, and will be requesting a call for papers which are due on September 1, 2022.
The Cooperative Executive Management Team (CEMT), a US-based farm management services company that focuses on black farmers and the implementation arm of the AIE Project, will be leading this charge. As part of the mandate through the AIE Project Design, each company focuses on their expertise and skill-set, creating a strong foundation and catch all for the cannabis and hemp space for each country on the continent of Africa.
“We invite contributions from Cannabis and Hemp farmers, processors, manufacturers, equipment suppliers, scientists, researchers, advocacy groups, private businesses, non-profits and individuals. Everyone has a part to play in the formation of this sustainable agricultural industry of cannabis and hemp across Africa, from seed to sale. This is why the launch of the AIE Project is right on time with the ruling of the Ghana Courts recently with regards to Cannabis, and the unconstitutionality of the process of law,” said Davisha L Johnson, President of CEMT.
The AIE Project and all of its contributors, through this process, will be used in a pilot programme in an African country not yet determined. The presentation will be made in October 2022 and implemented before the end of the year, with full rollout by January 2023 in several African countries.
The AIE Project Team encourages you to submit your papers related to cannabis in Africa under any of the subject matter areas of:
- Research and Development
- Herbal medicine
- Business services
- Branding and marketing
