The conference aim is *to develop a shared vision for Liberia’s forests and
people and to create practical plans to implement this vision*. The past two
years have seen a shift in the discourse of Liberia’s forest sector, and
the conference is a timely, strategic opportunity to bring about profound and
lasting change for the country’s forests, local communities, and the wider
economy. In the post-Ebola context, unsustainable demand for forest land and
timber has returned, national legal and policy processes are underway, and
new initiatives and projects in the country’s forest sector are
forthcoming. The conference therefore brings international speakers and
Liberian expertise together to assist national efforts to develop strategies
that support communities and that consider and preserve the local and global
benefits provided by Liberia’s rainforests.
