Creating an enabling environment for implementing of the VPA process

The project will be implemented through a combination of partnerships with local NGOs, collaboration with networks, coalitions and public sector institutions like the DAs, FC, and other civil society institutions like the Traditional Council.

The existing partnership of SFMP-G with logging companies, NDF, Client Earth, FWG, NFF-G, RMSC, TVD, the legal working group, etc will be deepened and bring together the capacities and networks of some of Ghana's main actors in the forestry sector. The government is not directly involved in the execution of this project, but is supporting in achieving their objectives through cooperation and is one of the major stakeholders and target groups. The project will build synergies with the Legal Working Group facilitated by ClientEarth in making recommendations for inclusions into the LAS verification protocols on ORL.
