Report on land tenure and cocoa production in Ghana

This survey was conducted in 2016 to provide information on land tenure and cocoa productivity in Ghana. This was a collaborative study between Cocoa Research Institute of Ghana (CRIG) and the World Cocoa Foundation.

The main aim of the study was to assess the land tenure systems prevalent in the production of cocoa in Ghana, and to better understand how various land tenure systems impact on-farm investment decisions and cocoa productivity. The study also sought to document the modes of land acquisition by respondents and other issues including security of land/farm, relationship between farm owners and sharecroppers/caretakers and challenges affecting the Ghanaian cocoa farmer while collecting information on farmers’ living conditions.
