Ghana is reported to have one of the highest deforestation rates in Africa at around 2% per year. To combat this loss, Ghana is in the process of building a national strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from forest loss and degradation, with the support of the World Bank´s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) and Forest Investment Program (FIP), as well as private donors.

Ghana developed a REDD Readiness Preparation Note (R-PIN), which was approved in July 2008 and a REDD Readiness Preparation Proposal (R-PP), which was signed in August 2009. More recently, Ghana produced a draft investment plan for the FIP. This FIP funding will be reported as part of the 2012 data later this year.
