Appendix II. Questionnaire used for the Expert Survey (Article I) Study on the EU FLEGT Voluntary Partnership Agreement’s (VPA) Implications to Forest Communities’ Livelihoods and Poverty Alleviation in Ghana Dear Sir/Madam, This questionnaire is a part of my PhD thesis, focusing on the EU Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) and its implications to forest communities’ livelihoods and poverty alleviation in Ghana. This PhD research is conducted at the European Forest Institute (EFI) and the University of Joensuu (JoY); under supervision of Ilpo Tikkanen (EFI) and Professor Olli Saastamoinen (JoY).
The questionnaire is intended to different stakeholder groups – governmental, nongovernmental, forest community organisations, academic and research institutions, private sector, etc. The aim of the questionnaire is to obtain information about the following
- The concept of livelihoods and poverty alleviation within FLEGT VPA in Ghana
- The position of different stakeholders in the negotiation of FLEGT VPA in Ghana
- The scope of final FLEGT VPA between EU and Ghana The objective of the study is to explore the extent and the ways in which the FLEGT VPA can strengthen the livelihoods of forest communities and lead to poverty alleviation in Ghana. The results will contribute to the first PhD article dealing with FLEGT VPA social agenda and implications to forest communities’ livelihoods and poverty alleviation in Ghana.
