The objective of the conference is to promote understanding and sharing of knowledge, good practices and solutions among and between scholars, practitioners, private sector and policy makers on sustainable and equitable wood fuel value chains and to advocate and explore strategies for their scaling-up.

The conference focuses on the following themes:

  • Wood fuel production and use: Environmental impacts and sustainable pathways.
  • Socio-economics of wood fuel value chains: Resilience, trade, livelihoods and health.
  • Governance, including policy, legislation, institutional mechanisms and justice in the wood fuel sector.

The event will be held at the campus of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in the city of Kumasi in the Ashanti region of Ghana. Kumasi is easily reached by public transportation from Accra, the capital of Ghana.
