Abstract

This report is based on a qualitative investigation carried out to unearth people’s perceptions in the Goderich Village community of the causes / drivers of deforestation and forest degradation. It has explored the historical background with regard to culture / tradition and economic activities. Regeneration has surely made an impact in beautifying the entire community, but at the expense of the demise of cultural values, and also future environmental risks. Ethnographic methodology was used as the main approach to investigating opinions and with more openended style questions used to help explore deeper understanding of people’s perceptions about common drivers of deforestation and forest degradation. Views on people’s perception about the way forward in cushioning future disaster were also addressed in the conclusion.
