Title REHABILITATION OF DEGRADED FORESTS FOR SUSTAINABLE WOOD FUEL PRODUCTION AND CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION IN THE FOREST-SAVANNA TRANSITION ZONE OF GHANA
Status OPERATIONAL
Executing agency
FORIG - FORESTRY RESEARCH INSTITUTE OF GHANA
Summary The project aims at contributing to reduction in rural poverty and improved income and employment while reducing deforestation and degradation and contributing to carbon sequestration in the forest savanna transition zone of Ghana. This will be achieved through sensitizing and building the capacity of commercial charcoal and firewood producers in the transition zone to plant and/or manage wood fuel plantations sustainably. Participatory approaches will be employed at all stages of the project to ensure that stakeholder needs are adequately incorporated in the choice and design of plantation regimes. Management plans will also be produced to guide communities for efficient utilization of wood fuel resources. The government of Ghana will benefit through improved resource base and sectoral information for policy decisions. Other benefits to be derived include building up of the capacity of resource managers to support forest communities to sustainably utilize and manage wood fuel resources and to reduce pressure on the natural forest estate. The project will be implemented mainly by Ghanaian agencies and experts.
