Publication year 2009
Abstract As part of the European Union initiated Forest Law Enforcement Governance and Trade (FLEGT) process a Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) has been signed between Ghana and the EU. In this paper an effort is made to answer the following questions: · How does the Ghana/EU VPA define “good (forest) governance” and how does the Agreement intend to improve governance processes in the sector; · How does the VPA define “social safeguards”; what conditions have been put in place to assess and mitigate possible negative impact of the VPA on local communities’ livelihoods associated with forests; · How does the Agreement compare with more general concepts on ‘governance’ and ‘social safeguards’?
