This document aims to give an overview of the rights local communities and civil society have to access information in relation to forest governance. We will also look whether there are any gaps in the legal protection of the right to access information. To do so we have analyzed how access to information is protected in national Ghanaian law (including the Constitution, acts and regulations). Subsequently we analyzed international treaties and conventions ratified by Ghana to see how they protect the same right.
