The landscape governance toolkit is a compendium of processes and approaches for designing and implementing landscape governance frameworks.
The resources shared in the toolkit reflect over twenty years of the Nature Conservation Research Centre (NCRC’s) work on landscape approaches in Ghana, as well as the experiences of other organisations, agencies and companies supporting landscape efforts.
Taking lessons from Partnerships for Forests-supported landscape governance models piloted in Ghana as well as pilots supported by other NCRC funders, the toolkit provides a knowledge bank for those hoping to adopt and successfully implement similar governance models.
The guidance document is structured into six sections, outlined below. Useful additional resources, referenced throughout the document, can be found in the digital toolbox. The toolbox also provides important background information and context on the cocoa industry in Ghana’s pathway to adopting landscape approaches for climate-smart production.
