Afram Plains District falls within the Dry Semi-Deciduous Forest Zone of Ghana. It is part of the transition zone between the forest and the guinea savanna zones and so is very diverse, having species that occur in both zones. However, this area is fast loosing its forest cover and biodiversity because of large scale crop farming, commercial production of charcoal and commercial animal husbandry of the nomadic type that fuels extensive bush burning for grass production.
The project is working closely with the Local Government (District Assembly), Traditional Authorities and landowners, the commercial charcoal producers and other stakeholders to change the practice of “nomadic commercial charcoal production” to a more environment friendly and efficient production process. It is hoped that the outcomes of this project can be replicated in other areas of Ghana.
