Forests and forest landscapes, particularly in tropical areas, are important
in regulating global carbon budgets and moderating climate change but they
are still being degraded and destroyed at a significant rate. These same
forests provide many other essential non-carbon benefits such as
biodiversity, provision of food/energy/materials, medicines, disease
mitigation, water quality and flood control.

By 2030 restoration and sustainable management of forest landscapes could
also make better use of biodiversity, to maintain or increase their capacity
to absorb and store carbon despite new climate extremes, while responding to
the needs of local and global society. 

The EC funded project on the “Role of Biodiversity in Climate Change
Mitigation” (ROBIN) has produced new insights and evidence concerning the
carbon and non-carbon benefits provided by tropical forest landscapes in
Latin America.

This conference aims, through a science-policy-society dialogue, to help
develop a coherent set of actions across sectors and levels of government to
address climate change mitigation and adaptation, biodiversity loss and the
maintenance of sustainable tropical forest landscapes.

Organised byForestry Development Authority, Global Witness, NGO Coalition, Rights & Resources Group

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.
