THE GHANA ROSEWOOD MESS: FAST-TRACKING GHANA VPA IMPLEMENTATION AS A SOLUTION

Rosewood logging and trade under salvage permit is undermining significant strides made over the last decade at addressing illegal logging; and reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation in Ghana.

As rosewood and other trees in the northern regions are logged, the area fast becomes a desert, making agriculture difficult, compounding their increasing poverty levels.

CSOs call on the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources to check this and sanitize the forest sector.
