Ghana - Forest Investment Program : Enhancing Natural Forest and Agroforest Landscapes Project (English)

The objective of the Ghana forest Investment Program Enhancing Natural Forest and Agroforest Landscapes Project is to improve forest and tree management practices by cocoa farmers, CREMA communities and forest reserve managers to reduce forest loss and degradation in selected landscapes in Ghana's High Forest Zone. The overall goal of the Forest Investment Program (FIP)-financed activities in Ghana is to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, while reducing poverty and conserving biodiversity. The overall goal of the FIP-financed program in Ghana is to reduce GHG emissions from deforestation and forest degradation while reducing poverty and conserving biodiversity. Ghana’s FIP Program was designed in 2012 with three components implemented by World Bank African Development Bank and IFC. These projects are designed to work together in a programmatic, landscape level approach, managed by the Ministry of Land and Natural Resources to reduce pressure on forests through an integrated landscape approach. The Multilateral Development Banks’ (MDB) components are also geographically positioned on the ground to avoid overlap and duplication. The project being discussed here consists of the following four components: (1) Policy Reforms and Institutional Strengthening. This component consists of efforts to advance implementation of reformed policies, improve the enabling environment, and strengthen the institutional means to achieve sustainable landscape and forest management. (2) Pilot Investments for Improved Forest and Landscape Management with Communities. Field- and community based investments are the core of the project. These will aim to establish and demonstrate improved forest and landscape management practices, while building the case for wider replication in terms of results. (3) Innovation, Capacity Building and Communications. This component will support communication, capacity building, and monitoring activities to support innovation, engage communities, and provide information relevant for improved landscape management practices. (4) Project Management, Monitoring and Coordination. This component will support project management and oversight, project monitoring and evaluation system, and wider coordination of the range of FIP-financed activities, including reporting at the international level.
