Ghana: Illegal logging and policy brief by University of Copenhagen

This study confirms that illegal logging constitutes a serious problem
in Ghana. The annual harvest is conservatively estimated at
approximately 3.3m m3 against the annual allowable cut 1.0m m3, ie.
70% of the annual harvest in Ghana is illegal.

The authors conclude
that forest management regulations introduced in the 1990s are not
working in practice, and that illegal logging is a symptom and result
of this failure. They believe fundamental reforms of the management
regime are needed to tackle illegal logging.
