Supporting SMFEs for sustainable livelihoods: facilitating sustainable charcoal production in Ghana

In Ghana, charcoal production and trade is an important small and medium forest enterprise, providing domestic energy for heating and cooking and forming a key livelihoods base for rural households. Despite this recognition, the sector is not well regulated, which threatens its sustainability.

This report describes a project designed to develop a model of local governance arrangements for sustainable charcoal production, through a multi-stakeholder process, and to initiate a process for national adoption of the model.
