Piloting Community Forest Monitoring in two forest reserves in Ashanti Region of Ghana through capacity building and field implementation
Between July, 2013 and July, 2014 the National Forestry Forum-Ghana in Partnership with WWF implemented the project dubbed "facilitating multi stakeholder dialogue on illegal logging and VPA in Ghana. The project buoilt the capacity of stakeholders in 30 communities in 10 forestry districts in Ghana. These were followed by district and regional forums which resulted in a national forum. Key amongst the outcomes from these forums was the commitment of community members who live around forest reserces to help forest management by helping in forest monitoring and also the need to reach other to other communities.
It is in this light that the NDF (previously WWF WAFPO) and the NFF-G have renewed their partnership and are implementing the project dubbed 'Piltoing Community Forest Monitoring in two Forest Reserves in Ashanti Region of Ghan through capacity building and field implementation'.
