The distribution of benefits derived from Forest resources in Ghana

This document aims to give an overview of the rights of local communities to share in the benefits from the exploitation of forests on their lands. We will also look whether there are any gaps in the legal protection of this right to share in the benefits. To do so we have analyzed how benefit sharing 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 share in benefits.
