Publication (Land Use Policy) : "The dynamics of property and other mechanisms of access: The case of charcoal production and trade in Ghana"

« Highlights

• Ability to benefit from charcoal in the forest savanna transitional zone of Ghana is more dependent on property.
• Customary authorities mediate direct access to trees used for producing charcoal in Ghana.
• Statutory institutions mediate access to transport and trade in charcoal in Ghana.
• Authority of chiefs has been strengthened in charcoal-producing communities relative to statutory agencies because the former is involved in authorizing and enforcing claims, while the latter is not.
• Realization of economic benefits of charcoal has led to contestation in rights. »
