Based on eight case studies, this book analyses conflicts over forests and trees in Ghana’s high forest zone and ways of dealing with them. It thereby addresses the full range of forest and tree-based livelihoods. Combining interactive governance theory with political ecology and conflict theories, the book provides an integrated framework for the analysis of natural resource conflicts. Recognising conflict management as a key building block of forest governance, it proposes constructive conflict management pathways capable of minimising conflicts, securing livelihoods and strengthening forest governance. The book is relevant for scholars and practitioners in forestry, natural resource management, social sciences and international development studies.
