Director's Welcome Message

Based on lessons gained from the advancement of industrialised countries, the National Science Technology and Innovation Policy recognises that the attainment of Ghana to the middle income status requires a solid science based, technology and innovation (STI) environment. The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), of which CSIR-Forestry Research Institute of Ghana (CSIR-FORIG) belongs, is one of the institutions set up to address issues on scientific and technological advancement. The CSIR has a vision of "using the transforming power of S&T for wealth creation". The role of CSIR-FORIG towards this vision is to undertake forest, forest products and related research and to disseminate and commercialize research outputs and services.

Worldwide forests are suffering from degradation. Fortunately, there are people who protect, conserve and restore forests. One of those people is Dr. Lucy Amissah, Senior Research Scientist at CSIR-Forestry Research Institute of Ghana. In an interview she shares her experiences with reforestation and natural regeneration. “People think that after planting a tree the work is done. But actually the real work, maintenance, only starts after planting the tree.” From Amissah’s perspective, removing the threats to forests is more efficient. By removing threats such as wildfire and grazing, forests can start to regenerate and bounce back. “Sometimes, the only thing you have to do is leave the forest alone and let it do the work”.
