Colonial and national interventions have considerably changed the natural
resource regimes regarding water and land in Northern Ghana. However, this
change has not led to the establishment of new institutions, but different
actors – farmers, bureaucrats, earthpriests, chiefs, and politicians – are
continuously engaged in negotiation process over (natural) resources.
While the institutional and distributional outcomes of these negotiation
processes remain inconclusive they have led to a precarious local power
balance, in which different actors rely on different institutions and
changing political alliances to pursue their interests.
