Ghana to boost production of legal lumber

Ghanaian local communities would produce lumber to shore up the volume of legal lumber supply for the domestic market. This would be achieved through the implementation of a project by Tropenbos International (TBI) Ghana, that seeks to link local communities to forest concession holders to produce legal lumber under the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), African Caribbean and Pacific Countries (ACP) and the European Union (EU) Forest Law Enforcement Governance Trade (FLEGT) support program.
Dr. Attah Alhassan, from the Timber Industry Development Division of the Forestry Commission, and who launched the program, stated: “Without a strong domestic market, our industry cannot grow. We need to look out for weaknesses in this collaboration to ensure a strong front.”
