in Monrovia (Liberia)

*www.forestgovernanceforum.com* [1]

*How can forest resources be managed in the interests of all stakeholders?
How can Forest Governance be strengthened to deliver results that make
economic, social and ecological sense?*

*Comprising of West African events (Ghana & Liberia) and Central African
events (DRC & Cameroon), */Forest Governance Forum/* is designed to create
an in-country space for discussion and exchange of ideas, experience and
research.*

*Blending regional and global speakers and participants from Government,
Civil Society, Trade & Industry, the NGO Community and the Academic World,
the objective is to bring debates surrounding Forest Governance to four key
African countries in order to widen participation, to facilitate more
national voices in the conversation, and to situate issues within a local and
international context.*

*Inspired by Biannual Illegal Logging Stakeholder Conferences at Chatham
House  [2]in London, The Forest Governance Forum contributes to the broader
objective of an EC-funded project, ‘Strengthening African Forest
Governance’  [3], which also includes academic and training components.*
