Training communites on honey making

 Working Group on Forest Certification is partnering with the European Union to strengthen community based forest stakeholders and key actors in the wood supply chain in three major timber producing areas in Ghana for the implementation of EU timber regulations and the new domestic market policy.

In line with the project's objectives, Working Group organized a workshop to train selected people from 10 forest fringed communities in the Bibiani Forest District on beekeeping (honey making). The purpose of the workshop was to train these people in honey making so as to serve as an alternative livelihood option and also to sustain the interest of the local people in VPA stewardship.

It is expected that the training will build the capacity of the participants in beekeeping who will also serve as trainers for other members of the community who might have interest in honey making. The workshop organized on the 30th of July, 2014 at the Queen Elizabeth Restaurant Conference Hall was attended by 30 participants from the selected communities.
