In Ghana, wildfires are now annual occurrence, resulting in the loss of lives, property and biodiversity. The article documents experiences and lessons from the Collaborative and adaptative community fire management initiative, part of the Forest landscape restoration through a sustainable wood energy value chai” project. The approach was informed through local community consultations and a review of related fire management policies and regulations, leading to support and incentives for safe and effective fire use and management. It is hoped that these findings can inform fire management practices elsewhere, while acknowledging that collaborative and adaptive community fire management is an evolving process and so requires constant learning to improve future practices.
