Abstract in another language

Challenges of contemporary environmental governance present significant implications for national and sub-national economies in Africa and occupy the core of development studies. Drawing from this, the doctoral thesis explores the dynamics of interplays between institutions at the community level and how these structure the preferences and behaviours of individual actors towards the natural environment. It attempts to explain ways in which the actions of institutionally structured actors influence aggregate environmental outcomes, and concurrently how such actions shape the ongoing evolution of these same institutions.

Primarily, it is a qualitative research with a cross-sectional design, and conducted in the Dormaa traditional area in Ghana. The research engages and contributes to debates in the social sciences about how various institutional domains shape micro-level environmental governance and management.
