Barriers to Sustainability of Alternative Livelihoods. A Case Study of a Forest Reserve in Ghana

Eric Nutakor, Brefo Sparkler Samar, Emmanuel Marfo and Kwame Antwi Oduro

This report presents the results of a case study of barriers to alternative livelihoods in Ghana. It assessed forestry related alternative livelihoods that were introduced within some communities fringing Nsemire forest reserve located in the Brong-Ahafo region of Ghana.

The objectives of the study were to:

Identify barriers to developing viable alternative livelihoods for forest-fringe communities and chainsaw operatives.

Identify measures that can facilitate the removal of barriers to sustaining alternative livelihoods in forest fringe communities.

This report was produced within the framework of the EU Chainsaw Milling Project “Supporting the integration of legal and legitimate domestic timber markets into Voluntary Partnership Agreements”. The project aims to find sustainable solutions to the problems associated with the production of lumber for local timber markets by involving all stakeholders in dialogue, information gathering and the development of alternatives to unsustainable chainsaw milling practices. In Ghana, the project is being carried out by Tropenbos International (TBI) in collaboration with the Forestry Research Institute of Ghana (FORIG) and the Forestry Commission (FC).
