The aim of this study was to investigate the perceptions of the environment at national and sub-national levels among actors who play, or may be expected to play in the future, key roles in the processes of environmental policy development. This study was carried out as part of the NRSP funded project entitled 'Dimensions of Public Governance and Forest Management in Ghana' (DEAR). The areas of particular concern focussed upon in the report are charcoal production and wild fire, and their perceived effects on the natural environment. Throughout the discussion the results are discussed in terms of the variations which exist between, and within, different categories of respondent.
