The results show that the incidence<br /> of extreme poverty increased between the two survey periods. The poor who were mostly found in the rural areas were involved basically in forestry and agriculture-related activities and across levels of the education system they had little or no education. Poverty incidence was also higher in the northern Savanna area compared to the Forest area, Coastal and northern Savanna areas.</p> </div> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/3" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">sbritwum</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 09/17/2012 - 16:21</span> <div class="field field--name-field-resp field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Responsible party</div> <div class="field__item">Forestry Research Institute of Ghana</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-upload field--type-file field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><table data-striping="1"> <thead> <tr> <th>Attachment</th> <th>Size</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"> <td> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="https://fornis.net/sites/default/files/documents/Comparative_analysis_poverty.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=316339">Comparative_analysis_poverty.pdf</a></span> </td> <td>308.92 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </div> </div> <a href="/taxonomy/term/7" hreflang="en">Forests and Poverty Alleviation</a> <a href="/taxonomy/term/489" hreflang="en">Poverty incidence</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/490" hreflang="en">standard of living</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/491" hreflang="en">ecological zone</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/492" hreflang="en">household characteristics</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/89" hreflang="en">ghana</a> Mon, 17 Sep 2012 16:21:21 +0000 sbritwum 478 at https://fornis.net The democracy effects of collaborative forest governance in Ghana: lessons for REDD https://fornis.net/node/436 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">The democracy effects of collaborative forest governance in Ghana: lessons for REDD</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p> This is part of a regional forest governance research programme, being implemented by CODESRIA, University of Illinois and IUCN titled 'Responsive Forest Governance Initiative'. in Ghana, the research is broadly investigating issues of democratic representation, citizenship and public domain as elements of democracy focusing on the extent to which collaborative forest management and participatory decision-making approaches produce democracy outcomes among rural communities. </p> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Anonymous (not verified)</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 06/27/2012 - 09:25</span> <div class="field field--name-field-resp field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Responsible party</div> <div class="field__item">CSIR Forestry Research Institute of Ghana</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-fund field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Funding bodies</div> <div class="field__item">Swedish International Development Agency</div> </div> <a href="/taxonomy/term/6" hreflang="en">Forest Policy and Governance</a> <a href="/taxonomy/term/259" hreflang="en">redd</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/89" hreflang="en">ghana</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/391" hreflang="en">forest governance</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/450" hreflang="en">democratic representation</a> Wed, 27 Jun 2012 09:25:03 +0000 Anonymous 436 at https://fornis.net Socio-political constraints to the enforcement of forest laws: a case study of chainsaw operations in Ghana https://fornis.net/node/309 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Socio-political constraints to the enforcement of forest laws: a case study of chainsaw operations in Ghana</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Description</div> <div class="field__item"><p> Forest law enforcement is difficult in weak nations like Ghana in the face of conflicting interests and competing claims to forest resources. One area of interest in Ghana is the enforcement of a ban on chainsaw operation. Since 1998, chainsaw milling is legally prohibited in Ghana. However, today, there is enormous evidence to show that the practice is on the increase, exploiting about 2.5 million cubic meters of trees annually and employing about 100,000 people. This high level of illegality presents a big challenge to implementation of Ghana’s Voluntary Partnership Agreement with the European Union (EU) and also to Ghana’s REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation)-plus agenda. The paper explores the socio-political constraints facing law enforcement agencies in enforcing the ban. It observes that high levels of rural unemployment, corruption among law enforcement agencies including the Forest Services Division (FSD) and the police, low political motivation and high elite influence in the forestry sector are some of the socio-political factors constraining effective enforcement. Notwithstanding, the practice seems to be well accepted and more than half of forestry officials at the operational level feel that the ban should be reviewed.</p> </div> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/3" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">sbritwum</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 05/30/2011 - 17:54</span> <div class="field field--name-field-resp field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Responsible party</div> <div class="field__item">Forestry Research Institute of Ghana</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-fund field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Funding bodies</div> <div class="field__item">European Union</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-upload field--type-file field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><table data-striping="1"> <thead> <tr> <th>Attachment</th> <th>Size</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"> <td> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="https://fornis.net/sites/default/files/documents/forest_laws.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=1041947">forest_laws.pdf</a></span> </td> <td>1017.53 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </div> </div> <a href="/taxonomy/term/6" hreflang="en">Forest Policy and Governance</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/5" hreflang="en">Forests and Climate Change</a> <a href="/taxonomy/term/391" hreflang="en">forest governance</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/392" hreflang="en">corruption</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/393" hreflang="en">law enforcement</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/380" hreflang="en">chainsaw milling</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/89" hreflang="en">ghana</a> Mon, 30 May 2011 17:54:47 +0000 sbritwum 309 at https://fornis.net Estimating the number of jobs created by chainsaw activities in Ghana https://fornis.net/node/307 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Estimating the number of jobs created by chainsaw activities in Ghana</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Description</div> <div class="field__item"><p> Chainsaw milling, a practice of using chainsaw machines to process trees to lumber, has been banned in Ghana for over ten years by Act 547 and LI 1649. In spite of this, the activity has been going on posing a real challenge to forest monitoring and sustainable forest management in Ghana. In order to be able to fully understand the social and economic impact of any policy intervention to deal with the issue, there is the need for policy makers to have a clear understanding of the scope of the problem, in terms of the number of people involved. The paper makes a contribution to this need by reviewing the various studies that have attempted and gives a current estimation. The paper draws mainly on two main approaches based on volume of illegal harvest and actual market stock volume of chainsaw lumber to estimate the number of people who engaged in chainsaw milling. The paper estimates that chainsaw milling directly employs nearly 97,000 people. The paper argues that using volume of chainsaw timber in reaching the<br /> market and a production efficiency parameter based on ratio of lumber to tree volume rather than lumber to log/beam volume is a more credible approach.</p> </div> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/3" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">sbritwum</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 05/30/2011 - 17:37</span> <div class="field field--name-field-resp field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Responsible party</div> <div class="field__item">Forestry Research Institute of Ghana</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-fund field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Funding bodies</div> <div class="field__item">European Union</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-upload field--type-file field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><table data-striping="1"> <thead> <tr> <th>Attachment</th> <th>Size</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"> <td> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="https://fornis.net/sites/default/files/documents/chainsaw_milling.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=60957">chainsaw_milling.pdf</a></span> </td> <td>59.53 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </div> </div> <a href="/taxonomy/term/5" hreflang="en">Forests and Climate Change</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/7" hreflang="en">Forests and Poverty Alleviation</a> <a href="/taxonomy/term/380" hreflang="en">chainsaw milling</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/384" hreflang="en">estimation of jobs</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/385" hreflang="en">informal timber industry</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/89" hreflang="en">ghana</a> Mon, 30 May 2011 17:37:04 +0000 sbritwum 307 at https://fornis.net Management of timber resources in areas outside forest reserves in Ghana: the role of stakeholders https://fornis.net/node/291 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Management of timber resources in areas outside forest reserves in Ghana: the role of stakeholders</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Description</div> <div class="field__item"><p> Forests outside the permanent forest estate (forest reserves) play significant role in the economic, social and environmental needs of Ghana. Over the last twenty years, timber outside forest reserves has consistently represented between one third and two thirds of the total annual recorded timber harvest in Ghana. In recent years timber harvest from off?reserve areas has declined to about 30%. One major cause of the declining is the lack of economic incentive for farmers who nurture, maintain and preserve timber resources. The lack of economic incentive is as a result of inequitable policy governing tree tenure and benefit sharing relating to naturally occurring timber resources in off?reserve areas. To safeguard the future and sustainability of the resources there is the need for policy revision that recognizes the input of stakeholders involved in off?reserve timber resources management. This study sought to determine farmers’ timber tree management practices and the role, rights and responsibilities of stakeholders involved in off? reserve timber resources management. The study was conducted in the Asunafo North District of Ghana where a score of key stakeholders were interviewed and a total of eighty (80) farmers were selected using a stratified random sampling and subsequently interviewed. The study revealed weeding, thinning, pruning/pollarding, preservation of specific tree species (singling) and fire protection/prevention as specific management activities performed by farmers. Agricultural land use system was found to influence timber tree maintenance as well as species diversity, age composition, and density. Cocoa farming system hosted the highest number of timber species followed by fallow, oil palm farming system and the least was found to be food crop (annuals) farming system. The main factor influencing farmers’ management activities is perceived beneficial attributes of tree to agricultural crops. Farmers and Forestry Commission performed direct roles while District Assembly and Traditional Authorities preformed indirect roles in timber resources management in areas outside reserves. The results further revealed that Farmers, Forestry Commission and District Assembly have been able to assert their roles and responsibilities while Traditional Authorities are yet to do so. Stakeholders’ roles, rights and responsibilities were favoured as a basis for equitable benefit sharing scheme. It is concluded that there is a considerable potential for off?reserve timber resources management if tree tenure and benefit sharing arrangement can be weighed more in favour of farmers/land owners coupled with recognition of roles, rights and responsibilities of stakeholders. Stakeholders need to have tools to perform their roles and responsibilities, and that coordination and collaboration between stakeholders and transparency through information dissemination is very much important for sustainable timber resources management in areas outside reserves.</p> </div> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/3" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">sbritwum</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Tue, 03/01/2011 - 17:13</span> <div class="field field--name-field-resp field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Responsible party</div> <div class="field__item">Forestry Research Institute of Ghana</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-fund field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Funding bodies</div> <div class="field__item">Tropenbos International &amp; Forestry Research Institute of Ghana</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-upload field--type-file field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><table data-striping="1"> <thead> <tr> <th>Attachment</th> <th>Size</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"> <td> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="https://fornis.net/sites/default/files/documents/Management%20of%20Timber%20Resources%20In%20Areas%20Outside%20Forest%20Reserves%20in%20Ghana_The%20Role%20of%20Stakeholders.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=3482771">Management of Timber Resources In Areas Outside Forest Reserves in Ghana_The Role of Stakeholders.pdf</a></span> </td> <td>3.32 MB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </div> </div> <a href="/taxonomy/term/6" hreflang="en">Forest Policy and Governance</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/5" hreflang="en">Forests and Climate Change</a> <a href="/taxonomy/term/346" hreflang="en">forest reserves</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/89" hreflang="en">ghana</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/347" hreflang="en">timber resources</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/348" hreflang="en">benefit sharing</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/349" hreflang="en">tree tenure</a> Tue, 01 Mar 2011 17:13:48 +0000 sbritwum 291 at https://fornis.net The role of the forestry research institute of Ghana’s library in socio-economic development https://fornis.net/node/257 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">The role of the forestry research institute of Ghana’s library in socio-economic development</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Description</div> <div class="field__item"><p> The world has been daunted with many challenges especially that of poverty over the centuries. In order to confront these challenges more effectively, research institutions have been established by various governments (both developed and developing economies) with the aim of facilitating social development. Countries that have contributed greater percentages of their Gross Domestic Products (GDP) to research stand tall in socio-economic development among nations, while those that have contributed smaller percentages are confronted with many developmental challenges. Libraries in research institutions play an important role in mobilizing needed information for socio-economic development. Research is built upon existing knowledge. Libraries are the beginning and end of research activities. Perceived ideas for research are derived from available knowledge which the library stocks and enhances its dissemination. A research library continuously assembles, process, preserves and disseminates the evidence of research.
