Abstract:By the turn of the millennium, forest governance had been given recognition on Ghana's development agenda. The emergence of various forest governance initiatives increased the diversity of actors in decisionmaking, resource use and management. This resulted in growing competition for resources and conflicting objectives among actors in the system-to-be-governed and the governing systems, with emerging conflicts being the result. The present study set out to explore and analyse governance arrangements, conflicts and conflict management in Ghana's high forest zone using the Tano-Offin forest reserve in Nkawie Forest District as a case study.
