The study was principally designed to provide a thorough understanding of the rattan production-to-consumption system in Ghana. It was also to identify constraints in the sector and recommend possible development interventions that will transcend these  constraints and ensure sustainable development of the sector to particularly, improve the livelihood of the rural stakeholders in the country. Although the rattan industry sector of Ghana is not well developed when compared to those of Asia countries, the future of the industry seems bright because of increasing demand for rattan products. However, the industry is being seriously threatened by a shortage of raw rattan which is rapidly being depleted. Consequently, there is an urgent need to increase rattan stock in the country by way of establishment of plantation, enrichment planting and agro-forestry.
