World Bank, Ghana (2022)

Matthew Owen from Kikenni Consulting led a national assessment of woodfuel supply and demand in Ghana. The team used friction-layer modelling to identify ‘woodsheds’ of demand for household, commercial and institutional use, and predict hotpots of unsustainable forest exploitation. Policy recommendations and interventions were developed for the World Bank-funded Ghana Landscape Restoration and Small-Scale Mining project in the Northern Savannah Zone and Cocoa Belt.
