This is a scoping study to develop a research project on innovative strategies for natural resource management at the FAI in Ghana. This research stands to make a significant contribution to the realisation of the FAI Purpose, through improved understanding of the social and economic influences which have led to existing policies, and the decision-making processes which need to be taken into account in advancing environmental policy. The focus is socio-political, not technological. The first two of the Purpose-level OVIs have been achieved; the third is being addressed at a level appropriate to a scoping study.
