Abstract: This is the annual report of the Ghana programme of Tropenbos International (TBI) for the year 2010. TBI is a nongovernmental organisation (NGO) based in the Netherlands. It was established in 1986 in response to concern about the degradation and disappearance of tropical rainforests worldwide. The goal of TBI is to achieve the sustainable management of tropical forest lands for the benefit of people, conservation and sustainable development. Tropenbos International Ghana aims at bridging the gap between forest policy, management and science; providing a forum for discussing forest issues; and carrying out relevant research and training. The objective of the programme is that forestry actors in Ghana deploy sound and adequate information for poverty reduction policies that improve forest-dependent livelihoods and increase forest cover and services in rural areas.
