Confusion Over Climate Award For Kufuor 3/16/2007
There is some confusion over the "Climate Change Award" bestowed on President Kufuor.

In the original press release, the Climate Change Award Foundation makes no mention of a €1 million prize money. However, the Ghana News Agency(GNA) claims the award includes such an amount.

The foundation website (link)indicates that the official ceremony of handing-over of the trophy will be "held in Accra on 9 MARCH in front of a delegation of personalites international and media"

Two distinct websites backed by different organizations claim to award such an award: galadesnations.com and (climatechangefoundation.eu)

According to the GNA, Climate Change Award Foundation is an European Union (EU) Foundation. According to their website "THE PERFUME FOUNDATION (an NGO) initiated the CLIMATE CHANGE AWARD to award a country that has shown outstanding endeavour to fight pollution and paid exceptional effort to protect the environment, and to encourage other countries to increase their efforts as well."
