Forestry Research Institute of Ghana is one of the 13 institutes of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).

It is located at Fumesua near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.

It was fully established as a research institute and named FOREST PRODUCTS RESEARCH INSTITUTE (FPRI) under the then Ghana Academy of Sciences in 1964 and in 1968 placed under the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).

Forest Products and Marketing Division

Over 11 million Ghanaians derive their livelihoods from the forest.

In addition to timber, nuts, fruits, resins, gums and charcoal, fruits, medicinal plants, bush meat, honey, pesticidal plants etc. are continuously exploited from the forest.

There are concerns on unsustainability partly due to lack of institutions that support marketing of most forest products, particularly NTFPs and hence poor access to markets.

This programme will therefore support market development for forest products

Priority areas will include:

Value chain development / capacity building

Bio-prospecting

Marketing and trade

Strengthen rural enterprises (including co-orporatives)

Development of standards and certification of marketed products

Access to domestic and international marketi

Private sector investment in non-timber forest products development and processing
