Forest Production and Biodiversity Conservation in Ghana, and Proposed International Support of Biodiversity Conservation

Summary: Forest areas in Ghana which should, from a biodiversity conservation point of view, be preserved without any periodic sustainable harvesting being allowed; how much that would cost for protection and in terms of revenues foregone; and a proposal on how that cost should be split between Ghana and the international community which would be the chief beneficiary of the resulting biodiversity conservation. This study led to a US$8.7 million grant to Ghana by the GEF (Global Environment Facility).
