The First Land Use Dialogue in Wassa Amenfi Landscape of southwestern Ghana took place 3-5 December 2018. Core partners of the LUD include IUCN, Codesult Network, The ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, and the Forestry Commission of Ghana. A landscape approach in Wassa-Amenfi aims to diversify local community income, clarify land tenure systems, and prevent further land conversion by local large-scale landowners and the government.
The outcomes of the Ghana Land-Use Dialogue in Wassa Amenfi will feed into:
- Community Resource Management Areas (CREMAs);
- Community participation and ownership of forest conservation and management efforts, particularly under REDD+ ;
- Clear land and tree tenure rights.
