In Ghana, increasing land use demands from a diversity of sectors puts many landscapes at risk. Developing an integrated and holistic view of these landscapes requires a more participatory, integrated and bottom-up approach, balancing multiple objectives through engaging private and local stakeholders.
Facilitating a dialogue where multiple stakeholders can discuss and collaborate to align their objectives and identify common risks and opportunities can lead to more efficient use and development of land resources. Providing the tools and concepts for allocating and managing land in the pursuit of social, economic, and environmental objectives in Ghana - where agriculture and other productive land uses compete with environmental goals - is key for sustainable landscapes in the region.
