The launch of the Ghana Forest Plantation Strategy (GFPS) on 23rd November 2016 marked the opening of a new era in the forest plantation industry in Ghana. The GFPS outlines the strategic direction, actions and resources and legal and regulatory framework required to restore our degraded and deforested landscapes. It indicates the technical and financial resources required and performance indicators necessary to track progress over the 25 year period. The overarching goal of the GFPS is “to achieve sustainable supply of planted forest goods and services to deliver a range of economic, social and environmental benefits”. The GFPS is consistent with Ghana’s national development agenda and also her commitments under international initiatives toward landscape restoration, reduction of the impacts of climate change and poverty reduction such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), The Bonn Challenge, Nationally Determined Contributions to Climate Change (NDCs) - Paris Climate Agreement, and the African Forest Landscape Restoration Initiative (AFR100). It is worth mentioning that Ghana has pledged to restore 2 million hectares of degraded and deforested landscapes by 2030 under the Bonn Challenge and AFR100.
