Forest Products Utilisation and Trade
Efficient processing and utilisation of forest products, trade and taxation, and valuation of forest are key issues to support sustainable conservation and management of forest resources. The group will synthesise latest research on these issues and identify specific new areas for scientific inquiry.
This paper is a concentrate of the experiences gained from the Product Development Segment in the ITTO-TEDB-FORIG Project "Industrial Utilisation of Selected Ghanaian Lesser Used Timber Species".
Goal: To develop conservation and sustainable utilization strategies for medicinal plant species within forest fringe communities of different ecological zones in Ghana.
