Researching the possible and likely implications of Ghana’s REDD+ and VPA plans on land and tree tenure reform

It is widely understood that the existing land and tree tenure arrangements in Ghana hinder improvements in forest management and protection, and limit more equitable benefit sharing. Ghana is currently undergoing reforms related to the FLEGT VPA process and the REDD+ processes, both providing the opportunity to address the current problems related to tenure. This study aims to assess the problems and possibilities
presented by both processes to ensure meaningful reform of land and tree tenure, and to suggest how best to use these processes to advocate for effective reform.
