The Northeast Ghana Savannah Project--A Case Study in Project Design.
Matlock, W. Gerald; Johnson, Jack D.
This report examines a project design for land degradation problems in the northern and upper regions of Ghana. The project was jointly sponsored by the Ghana Council for Scientific and Industrial Research and the Agency for International Development. The council is responsible for coordinating the activities of 10 independent research institutes. Furthermore, the council advises the government on the use and conservation of Ghana's natural resources and how to employ scientific research in these matters. Using a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional design, the council brought the scientific community together to study poor land use practices in the savannah regions. The Ghana project design combined organized problem-solving methodology and a multidisciplinary team approach to produce a unique resource research program. (MR)
