Afforestation on degraded land

Afforestation - Establishment of Commercial Plantations

A feasibility study showed the potential for reforestation in the forest belt of Ghana. Follow-up in relation to clarification of land tenure and the design of demonstration plots was considered necessary as the basis for the elaboration of prospectus material for potential investors. The project was stopped just before the establishment of the demonstration plots was to take place. The project idea is still considered valid if a Ghanaian partner with the right commercial attitude can be identified. The project preparation activities were supported by Danida's Private Sector Programme.

Services provided by DFE staff:

Project management, liaison with Ghanaian partners, design of demonstration plots, species selection, instructions for establishment of the plantings and pre-calculations of return rates on investment.

Under the right conditions, re-forestation with teak in mixed stands is an economically favourable option in Ghana.
