2011 > 20 Key Indicators > Provisions for Transparency in Forest Laws

The Forestry Commission (FC) New Service Charter in 2008 provides for customers' right to information. The previous service charter was translated into various local languages but the current charter is not. The FC contends that the reason it has not been translated into local languages is that most Ghanaians cannot read in their local languages. Request for information have been made and the information was provided.

However in general practice the FC is not adhering to the charter and they are not being pursued to meet their commitments. The Freedom of Information Bill when passed into law will compel them to respond to the provisions that are enshrined in their own charter.
