INTEGRATING COMMUNITY & CIVIL SOCIETY INPUTS INTO FOREST MANAGEMENT PLANNING IN GHANA
  • Ghana’s forest resources are vital for the country’s sustainable development.
  • Various forestry reform initiatives have been implemented to improve governance in the forestry sector.
  • Participatory approach such as collaborative forest management in Ghana aims at achieving representation of a broad segment of primary stakeholders.
  • Civil Society Organizations and local communities in Ghana have a reputation for their interest in forest resources management.
  • In recognizing this in addition to the rights of communities, the Forestry Commission has modified the focus of its management system to ensure greater consultation with stakeholders, especially local communities that are dependent on the forests.
