Conservation and the environment in Ghana
The programme's current activities are targetted towards responsible forest management through WWF's Global Forest & Trade Network (GFTN) and effective Law Enforcement by participating in the Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) and Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) to address the problem of illegal logging. It also focuses on improving rural livelihood while promoting sustainable forest management throught its Alternative Carving Wood for Sustainable Livelihood project.
In view of WAFPO's interest in achieving tangible conservation targets and protection of forest resources in the Guinean Moist Forest, it welcomes partnerships that will bring additive values to its respective goals.
