Abstract:Review of the Volta Resettlement Scheme in Ghana which started in 1962 and is concerned with the resettlement of some 80.000 persons who have been displaced by the creation of the Volta Lake. For the crop farmers, the attempt to provide an adequate means of livelihood has not yet been successful. For a short time a new two-phase scheme for intensified land clearing has been introduced which might give the Resettlement Scheme a chance of success.
