    Ghana Case Study: Prepared for FAO as part of the State of the World’s Forests 2016 (SOFO) 2016

    Agriculture, including forestry, is the backbone of the Ghanaian economy. As at 2014, it provided 22% of the Gross Domestic Product, 50% of export earnings and 45.5% and 50.9% of total employment in agricultural production and processing respectively. The export of timber and other forest products accounted for 11%of Ghana’s export earnings and 6% of the GDP in 2000. The formal sector is responsible for providing livelihood to around 100,000 people, but many more earn some form of income from th e forests. In the recent years timber export has fallen, with 2010 seeing a fall of 5.4%. However, while there was a decline in the export, the country still saw an increase in revenue for the same period. In 2010, Ghana earned 137.9 million Euros through timber export, when compared to 128.2 million Euros in 2009. Forest value added to GDP in 2011 was recorded at $929,400 (GhC 1,549,000) and $650,513 (GhC 2,537,000) in 2014.

    Forests and woody vegetation cover a total surface area of 1.3 million ha in 2015 (FAO 2015) that represents 8% of the country surface area. It includes 1 million ha of forests and 0.3 Million ha of shrubs and other woody area. The forest area has increased from 643,000 ha in 1990 to 1,041,000 ha in 2015 ((FAO 2015) that corresponds to an increase by 62% in the last twenty five years or an annual increase of 1.9%. The most important programs of forest and pastoral plantation were between 1990 an d 2010, with a rhythm of plantation of 22,000 ha annually (FAO 2015), recently, during the period 2010-2014, forest and pastoral expansion concerned only 6,000 ha per year. In the other side, forest fires have affected about one thousand ha per year during the period 1996-2010, and 3167 ha per year on average during the 2011-2014. Similarly, annual deforestation has increased from 400 ha (1996-2010) to 800 ha for the period 2011-2014. It should be indicated that half of the plantation consists o n pastoral plantation. Forest and pastoral plantation is usually conducted in forest area (replanting burned areas when natural regeneration is not possible, reforestation of harvested areas, replacing shrubs (1400 ha per year; FAO 2015)), in agricultural lands (planting the banks of ravines, for soil conservation purposes and for windbreaks), and in the pastoral lands (plantation of forage species).

    Georgia Case Study: Prepared for FAO as part of the State of the World’s Forests 2016 (SOFO) 2016

    The State of the World’s Forests (SOFO) 2016 “Forests and Agriculture – Land Use Challenges and Opportunities” examines the competing demands for land for forests and agriculture; and the relationship between forest cover changes and food security. In particular, forests and food security highlight the possibility to meet food security objectives while maintaining or increasing existing forests. FAO has identified about ten countries that have either significantly reduced their deforesta tion rate or have maintained/increased their forest cover and, at the same time, have increased food security since 1990. Georgia case study was carried out to analyze the key factors that have contributed to these positive trends.

    The goal of this document is to put together and to analyze information and materials which have played significant role in improving forest condition and food safety during last 25 years. In the limits of this short-term task it is impossible to carry out full de tailed analysis. Nevertheless, the opportunity to use results of earlier researches has greatly helped correct formulation of basic problems for further discussion.
