Ownership and use rights of forest natural resources Ghana
This document aims to give an overview of the rights local communities and civil society have to access information in relation to forest governance. We will also look whether there are any gaps in the legal protection of the right to access information. To do so we have analysed how access to information is protected in national Ghanaian law (including the Constitution, acts and regulations). Subsequently we analysed international treaties and conventions ratified by Ghana to see how they protect the same right.
This legal briefing is a part of a series of five legal briefings. Each of them focusing on the legal protection of a key right that can support civil society and local community representatives in their work relating to natural resources and community rights.
