Ghana joins PEFC, becoming its third member in Africa, alongside Cameroon and Gabon.
"Joining the PEFC Alliance is a vital step towards gaining international recognition for our Ghanaian National Forest Certification System," said Emmanuel Amoah Boakye from the Working Group on Forest Certification.
"Now we are a PEFC member, we are looking to the next stages of preparing our national system for PEFC endorsement," Mr. Boakye explained. "This includes stakeholder consultations on the draft national standards, pilot testing and then finalizing the standards. Once these are complete we will submit our system to PEFC International."
PEFC is the world's largest forest certification system.
