Liberia-US Forest Service Climate Change Technical Cooperation

Jump to: navigation, search

"Liberia contains over 40% of the remaining closed canopy rainforest in West Africa, a sizeable carbon sink. The Forest Service works with the Government of Liberia to reorganize its forest service and forestry sector in the post-conflict era. The US Forest Service helped develop a chain of custody system for tracking timber and a financial management accountability system to reform the forestry sector—leading to the lifting of UN sanctions on Liberian timber."
