Ghana’s Forest and Wildlife Policy reviewed

The 1994 Forest and Wildlife Policy is now being reviewed by the Ghana's Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources. This review was notably needed by several issues, such as  institutional and legislative reforms within the forest sector. Moreover, this review was also desirabe  regarding current global initiatives such as the Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) between the Government of Ghana and the European Union (EU), the EU's Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) and the Non-Legally Binding Instruments (NLBI) project .
The new Forest and Wildlife Policy is currently in its final draft version. Remarkably, there is a shift from timberization to biodiversity conservation which represents the new policy's main focus on conserving and protecting biological resources, as opposed to feeding the timber industry which the 1994 policy did by prioritising the provision of raw materials for industry over conservation of natural resources.
