Abstract: Though the dominant land tenure practices in Ghana are customary in nature, there is nevertheless a rural-urban divide in tenurial practices in the country. Whilst customary land tenure dominates in the rural areas, statutory land tenure is dominant in the urban areas. To ensure any changes in tenure, agricultural and environmental conditions in both the rural and urban areas for effective land management, it is important to assess the current perceptions and attitudes of stakeholders towards these conditions. This paper provides an analysis of stakeholders’ perceptions and attitudes of key tenurial, agricultural and environmental issues in north-east Ghana, as an input into the formulation of relevant policy strategies towards seeking positive changes to these issues as they impact on the lives of stakeholders.
