Ghana : Indicators

2011 > 20 Key Indicators > Land Ownership and Forest Use Maps

There are no ownership and forest land use maps but there are maps on most of the reserves and stock survey of the off-reserves. These maps can be found at the district Forest Services Division offices in hard copy. Some digital maps of the reserves can also be obtained from the Resource Management Support Centre in Kumasi.

Several localized disputes exist in various communities between different claimants to a piece of land, most of who usually have site plans and maps of various kinds which are not necessarily codified. There are frequent newspaper reports on disputes arising from unclear tenure arrangements. The Forestry Commission has received grants from Japan to conduct detailed land use maps and also develop a map for all the forest areas in Ghana. They are waiting for the National Security to support them with Aircrafts. The project which has one and a half years duration, started two months ago.
