Ghana’s rapid deforestation has been driven by agricultural expansion (largely for cocoa), wood harvesting for energy, population growth, gold mining and timber lobby groups. Inefficient and corrupt management of forest resources has led to over-exploitation, resulting in degraded forests that are more susceptible to wildfire and flooding.
Ghana can be categorized into three vegetation zones: the high forest zone, the transitional zone and the Savannah zone. While this project focuses on the northern Savannah zone as a key area in need, it also involves community planting sessions in the Brong Ahafo and Ashanti regions of southern Ghana, as well as the Central and Eastern regions. Collaborating with both traditional and political community leaders will ensure this project has a wide impact, giving us the opportunity to educate local people on the importance of trees and the detrimental impact of illegal logging.
