Roselyn Fosuah Adjei

Director for Climate Change and National REDD+ Focal Point, Forestry Commission of Ghana

Roselyn Fosuah Adjei works with the Forestry Commission of Ghana as Director for Climate Change and National REDD+ Focal Point. She has been working on sustainable Forest Management for the past 14 years with particular interest in building and designing inclusive and transformative governance structures that help foster cross sectoral partnerships, particularly with local communities and Private sector. With a Masters Degree in Carbon Management from The University of Edinburgh, Scotland, Roselyn believes that these governance structures form the bedrock of innovative landscape level approaches that address deforestation and forest degradation and also build ecosystem resilience. She currently manages a diverse portfolio of forest landscape programs with funding support from the FCPF, GCF, UNDP and FAO, addressing agriculture led deforestation and forest degradation to increase production particularly for important national commodities such as Cocoa and Shea whilst aggressively restoring forest cover and empowering local communities. The outcome of such programs contribute to both local and international climate change mitigation and adaptation targets towards the achievement of the Landmark Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
