Abstract: Sustainable livelihoods of fringe communities is said to be one of the major challenges facing sustainable management of protected areas. This paper investigates the nature of this challenge by linking land tenure and sustainable livelihood to the successful implementation of the new concept of Community Resource Management Area (CREMA) in Ghana. Analyses of data gathered by a combination of individual and group interviews, as well as focus group discussions, established that security of land tenure was critical to all stakeholders. A simple local land title registration system to stem the problems emanating from the current traditional practices that undermine the sustainability of the CREMA concept was identified as crucial. Since this will lead to the documentation of the most predominant land uses in rural Ghana, the role of the various land sector agencies cannot be overemphasised.
