The Fire-Smart Landscape Governance Project (FSLGP) is a component of the Working Landscape (WL) Programme; aimed at realizing benefits in terms of climate change mitigation and adaptation. It is designed be achieved through the sustainable use of forests, and trees resources in climate-smart landscapes. This is inspired by the revering role of forests and trees in carbon stocks enhancement, improving resilience to climate change, supporting people’s livelihoods and sustaining agricultural value chains in such landscapes.
The Forests for a Just Future - Green Livelihoods Alliance programme is a five-year programme funded by the Foreign Affairs Ministry of the Netherlands. The programme is being implemented in Ghana by three partners (Tropenbos Ghana, A Rocha Ghana and Friends of the Earth Ghana) and within two landscapes- Juaboso Bia and Atewa. Tropenbos Ghana works in the Juaboso-Bia landscape.
The Accessible Soils And Sustainable Environments (ASASE) project is a four-year project in the Ghanaian cocoa landscape. It is co-funded by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) as part of the Sustainable Development Goals Partnership (SDGP). Driven by a belief that a thriving, climate-smart cocoa sector is possible, this project will work with 5,000 farmers in two of Ghana’s main cocoa producing areas: the Ashanti and Eastern regions. Using a landscape approach, the ASASE project moves away from the traditional focus on the direct supply chain and instead intervenes on 3 levels: working together with cocoa farmers, their rural communities and in local forest remnants.
LEAN is a four-year project funded by the European Union’s flagship Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+) initiative that aims to conserve biodiversity, build climate resilience, and reduce emissions from land-use changes in the savannah, high forest, and transition zones of Ghana—and all while helping local farmers to improve their livelihoods. It will be implemented on the ground by a consortium of four local and international NGOs with expertise in these challenging fields: The Rainforest Alliance, World Vision Ghana, Tropenbos Ghana, and EcoCare Ghana.
The Research for Development and Innovation Agriculture and Learning (ReDIAL) Action is funded by the European Union and is being implemented in Ghana by a consortium consisting of Friends of the Nation (FoN), Tropenbos Ghana, the Faculty of Renewable Natural Resources of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (FRNR-KNUST) and supported by SAYeTECH Company and SESI Technology. The ReDIAL project is part of EU initiative on Climate-relevant Development Smart Innovation through Research in Agriculture (and food systems) in developing countries – DeSIRA.
