This document aims to give an overview of the rights of local communities and civil society to participate in forest and wildlife governance. We will also look whether there are any gaps in the legal protection of this right to participate. To do so we have analyzed how the right to participate is protected in national Ghanaian law (including the Constitution, acts and regulations). Subsequently we analyzed international treaties and conventions ratified by Ghana to see how they protect the right to participate.
