Women’s Group, Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU). The cooperative transport union, New Edubiase Youth Association etc are but few examples of identifiable livelihood community groups that could be utilized in the planning process. For the purpose of this planning the presidents, leaders, chairmen, chiefs of the identifiable groups should be invited to represent the interest of their groups as a basis of identifying their needs and onwards distribution of the Assembly’s resources.
Land Tenure System
The system of land Tenue prevalent in the district is principally the “Abunu” and “Abusa” systems. Whereas in the case of “Abunu” the farmer shares his produce equally with the land owner or Lander, in the case of the “Abusa” . The land owner takes two-thirds of the farm produce.
This system does not serve as motivation for increase productivity on the part of the farmers. In some instances, the land owner dictates the types of crops to be produced irrespective of the suitability of the land to the crop in question. One possible advantage of the system is the permanence of land holding, settler farmers are allowed to hold their farms for a long period of time, creating a situation of security and permanent settlement in areas like Tweapease, Nkrankese and Menang.
Community – Base Organisations: CBOs
Community Based Organisations abound in the district though they are not well structured and formally organized. Such organizations are formed around economic social, political and diverse livelihood such as Hairdressers Association, Butchers Association Catholic women’s group, Methodist Women class etc.
