REDD+ Ghana: Engaging People in Sustainable Forest Management and Bringing Community Benefits

Forests and related landscapes and ecosystems play a broad role in Africa’s development, contributing to poverty alleviation, shared prosperity, and inclusive green growth. Forests serve as a diverse source of jobs and livelihoods. They provide a range of goods and services that contribute directly to the well-being of the rural poor and critical raw materials that contribute to other sectors of the economy. At the same time, forests are under extreme pressure because of demands for food, fuel, and fiber which contribute to forest loss and degradation and habitat fragmentation. This video, part of a series, features forest communities’ livelihoods in Ghana, drivers of deforestation and its human impacts. The video series also includes Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Liberia, and Mozambique For more information visit: http://www.worldbank.org/en/topic/forests http://www.profor.info/ http://www-cif.climateinvestmentfunds.org/fund/forest-investment-program http://www.forestcarbonpartnership.org/ http://www.biocarbonfund-isfl.org/
