Making Environmental Management more responsive to local needs: Decentralisation and evidence-based policy in Ghana

Briefing/policy papers

This paper reports on research in Ghana’s Brong-Ahafo Region concerning the effects of democratic decentralisation on management of the natural environment, particularly forest resources. It argues that, despite nominal decentralisation, environmental policy remains largely unresponsive to rural interests. The paper considers the types of interventions which could enhance the flow of information between rural dwellers and policy makers so as to strengthen local-level influence.
