Creating an enabling environment for implementing of the VPA process

Rights based approach for community & civil society participation in local decision making and for ensuring transparency & accountability will be mainstreamed. The project will work to build the capacities of communities on their legal rights and responsibilities under the VPA. In this project it is foreseen that the outcomes of the tools and guides to be developed and tested (which in themselves are innovative) will serve as guide for up-scaling future training activities on the VPA & FLEGT in Ghana.

In addition, the FLEGT capacity building in Ghana can lay the basis for FLEGT support in other countries that are advancing FLEGT negotiations, like Liberia.
