Allanblackia: Standard Setting and Sustainable Supply Chain Management (Phase II)

Project Team:
Anglaaere, L.C.N., Blay, D., Damnyag, L., Dabo, J., Owusu, S. and Manu, E.

Th is project, which is sponsored by the Swiss Economic Cooperation Organization (SECO), is a continuation of a fi rst phase that focused on establishing biological baselines for Allanblackia (AB) within five communities in the Western Region. It involved an assessment of phenology of species (flowering, fruiting, fruit size and number of seeds per pod), regeneration and growth rates of the Allanblackia tree on farms and in the forest. Following a successful completion of this phase, a proposal was made for a second phase to move the AB programme forward and to, among other things, increase population of AB within the landscape. Th e project was consequently up-scaled to cover 8 communities in the Western Region.

The Development Objective (DO) of the project is that “Allanblackia improves livelihoods and landscapes in Allanblackia endemic communities of Ghana”. The Speci c Objective (SO) of the project is that “Allanblackia farmers have improved access to markets for sustainably produced Allanblackia, improving their livelihoods and landscapes”. To achieve these objectives FORIG undertook the following tasks:

Preparation and implementation of Allanblackia related Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) plans;
Preparation of Allanblackia FLR monitoring and evaluation framework and training of field team to collect and analyze data.
Creation/establishment of demonstration plots on sustainable Allanblackia (Figures 3.13 & 3.14), using standard/guidelines and the principles of FLR.
Assessment of needs of community nurseries and support of AB related nursery activities.
