Protecting Liberia’s Forest

Conservation for People and Planet

Author: TMP Systems & Rights and Resources Initiative

Date: February 3, 2016

Liberia holds some of the last remaining, intact forests in West Africa and so reducing deforestation quickly and efficiently would be important in global climate change mitigation efforts. This paper aims to help by providing a rough sense of how many people might be affected by the protected area plans. It then examines evidence on compensation costs to give a sense of the budget that might be required if principles of Free Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) are respected per Liberia’s new Land Rights Policy.
